In 2007 Whitechapel Gallery closed for a major expansion leaving only the auditorium open for visitors. This became the launch pad for a pioneering collaborative programme dedicated to artists’ films. Ten years later Artists’ Film International has grown from five to 15 partners, pooling local knowledge to exchange moving image works across the globe, from Kabul to Hong Kong, Tromsø to Buenos Aires. The anniversary screening will highlight a work from each partner, celebrating some of the most exciting and diverse artists working in film, video and animation over the last decade.
