November Film Festival is an international festival for experimental film and artists’ moving image, with the inaugural edition taking place between the 16th and 20th of November 2016 in London. We welcome single channel film and video works from within the fields of essay and experimental film, artists' moving image and media art, as well as documentary, ethnographic and narrative works that seek to expand, redefine or reconfigure the means and ends of their respective fields. November exists to provide access to, and develop audiences for, artists' moving image work and is committed to engaging local audiences with new and/or unheard voices in film.
We are particularly interested in works made by early stage filmmakers and artists whose work is underrepresented in the UK. We provide a platform in London for moving image works made for the gallery and for the cinema with the aim of building a community across disciplinary and institutional faultlines. We are principally concerned with exploring continuities and contrasts across generations, identities and geographies within film practice, and the curated programmes will place emerging next to established voices, and contemporary works next to historical ones. Alongside curated film programmes that stage conversations among the selected works there will be a series of talks and workshops facilitating exchange and debate.
November Film Festival is organised and curated by Screen and Audiovisual Research Unit, a collective made up of artists, filmmakers and researchers.
