Film London Jarman Award

The annual Film London Jarman Award celebrates UK artist film-makers whose work, like Jarman’s, resists conventional definition and encompasses innovation and excellence.

Winners Luke Fowler, Lindsay Seers, Emily Wardill and Anja Kirschner & David Panos produced three minute films for Channel 4 responding to the context of television. These are presented together for the first time for Jarman2014, a year-long celebration of the life and work of Derek Jarman. The Award is part of Film London’s support of artist film-makers through FLAMIN.
