Screening and UK premiere of Shadow Sites I followed by “In conversation” with the writer and critic Rachel Withers at the Ritzy Picturehouse, London. The event was part of Making the Cut a series of artists’ presentations and talks organised by Film and Video Umbrella.
As part of ‘Free to Air 2010’, Film and Video Umbrella presented a series of talks and events in which artists from London, known for their innovations with the moving image, showcased new work and discussed their practice. These presentations, collectively entitled ‘Making the Cut’, focused on artists who have made their mark over the last few years, while speculating also on the future of this kind of experimental practice at a time of unprecedented pressure on public funding. Reflecting the breadth and diversity of London’s cultural life, ‘Making the Cut’ was initiated in collaboration with a number of cultural organisations across the capital.
