LONDON.- The shortlist for this year’s Film London Jarman Award has been announced.

The prestigious £10,000 prize celebrates the pioneering work of the UK’s foremost artist filmmakers. The artists selected this year are:

• Cécile B. Evans
• Beatrice Gibson
• Mikhail Karikis
• Hetain Patel
• Imran Perretta
• Rehana Zaman

From cutting edge digital animation to analogue 16mm film, the work of the shortlisted artists provides a barometer of the strength and diversity of artists working with moving image today. Flickering montages of news footage, real life action, surreal TV soap operas, intense musical scoring and collaborative work with children demonstrate the spectrum of innovation within the medium. Audiences are drawn into imagined realms and are gripped by compelling narratives, whilst continually being confronted with the urgent political climate of today.

Adrian Wootton OBE, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission said: “This year’s Jarman Award shortlist is a fantastic showcase of original work that seeks to question, alter and articulate the modern world around us by exploring prevalent topics such as environment, identity and consumerism. With practices ranging from puppetry and animation to dance and poetry, these artists highlight the breadth of creativity and craftsmanship that art-film has to offer, as well as its powerful ability to immerse and provoke audiences. I’d like to congratulate all six shortlisted artists, and thank our funders Arts Council England as well as new and returning partners Whitechapel Gallery, Genesis Cinema and h Club London for all their vital support.”

Melanie Keen, Director of Iniva said on behalf of the 2019 Jarman Award jury: “This year’s shortlist of artists astonishes in its breadth of moving image practice. From cinéma vérité to highly-scripted drama, audiences will have an opportunity to experience work by all six artists when it goes on national tour in September.”

The winner of the £10,000 Jarman Award will be announced on 25 November at the Barbican Centre. In the run-up to the event, art lovers can explore the work of the shortlisted artists as part of a specially-curated tour that will travel the length and breadth of the UK. Events will take place in ten major arts venues from Belfast and Bristol to Glasgow and Cardiff, culminating in a special weekend of screenings, discussions and performances at the Whitechapel Gallery, London on 16 and 17 November.

The jury who selected this year's shorlistt are: Andrea Lissoni, Senior Curator, International Art (Film). Tate Modern and Film London Board Member; Iwona Blazwick OBE, Director, Whitechapel Gallery; Artistst Larry Achiampong & David Blandy; Melanie Keen, Director, Inivia and Tyrone Walker-Hebborn, Director, Genesis Cinema.
