Artists Moving Image Festival 12-13 Sept. 2015 Tramway

It’s complicated, but good complicated. FILM OPEN, hosted by Transmission is now part of LUX Scotland’s Artists Moving Image Festival 12-13 Sept. 2015 at Tramway, Glasgow. This means I can tell you about it in at least 3 ways – and no one has agreed on the apostrophe.

This month sees Tramway play host to the latest edition of the Artists’ Moving Image Festival (AMIF), which provides a platform for the discussion and presentation of the artists moving image form, showcasing forms of production and research alongside screenings and discursive events. #AMIF2015 is presented by Tramway and LUX Scotland.

This year’s programme examines the role of collective thinking and making. Presenting collaborative forms of production and research, the festival considers what it means for a group to constitute a single body of work and, inversely, how one can speak on behalf of collective thought or action. It features a diverse range of film, video and performance, examining the breadth of artists’ moving image in Scotland and internationally, with an emphasis on communities and networks, and includes programmes from and by Conal McStravick, LUX Critical Forum Glasgow, Norms, tenletters and Transmission.

The festival includes work by: Liam Allan, Catharine Anyungo, Dan Auluk, Lorna Boschman, Emma Charles, Karen Cunningham, Lewis den Hertog, Aideen Doran, Jemma Egan, Richard Fung,Warren Garland, John Greyson, Toby Huddlestone, Stuart Layton, Zoe Leonard and Catherine Saalfield, Maryniak and Mclean, Tom Kalin, Anja Kirschner and David Panos, Pratibha Parmar, Mathew Parkin, Fred Pedersen, Falke Pisano and Luca Frei, Yvonne Rainer, James Richards and Steve Reinke, Marlon Riggs, Emily Roysdon, Helke Sander, Jack Saunders, Susannah Stark, Alexander Storey Gordon, Elisabeth Subrin,Jane Topping, Charlie Tweed, Grace Williams, Laura Yuile, and more; as well as a special two-day focus on the legacy of the artist Stuart Marshall (1949 – 1993).
