Applications Now Open for British Art in Motion

  • 22 March 2024

Entering its third year, the British Art in Motion film competition is for undergraduate students who want to experiment with filmmaking as a research practice. We want to give students the chance to explore the possibilities of filmmaking, and to experiment with how film can be used to offer new, engaging, creative and thought-provoking ways of interpreting works of British art and architecture from all periods.

For ten successful entrants, British Art in Motion will:

  • provide a fully funded trip to London this summer for a specialist programme designed to equip you with all the skills you need to make a short film
  • give you a production fund of £500 to make your film over the summer months
  • provide guidance and mentorship from experts
  • give you the opportunity to see your film screened at a central London cinema, and invite your family and friends to that special evening
  • offer a cash prize of £1,000 for the winning film, and prizes for the runners-up
  • enable you to see your film published on the Paul Mellon Centre’s website
