Film London has been awarded almost £1m funding through the Arts Council England National Portfolio 2015-2018 Funding Programme. Film London will use the funding to continue to deliver its Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN), offering artist filmmakers funding, training and mentoring.

National Portfolio Organisation funding will see the Film London Jarman Award continue, the annual prize which awards £10,000 to an artist who demonstrates "exceptional creativity and resists conventional definition embodying the legacy of Derek Jarman".
Film London will again run FLAMIN Productions, a commissioning fund offering up to £40,000 production funding, plus development support for large scale, single screen works that represent a major step in an artist’s practice.
Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission, said: "Thanks to backing from Arts Council England, we are delighted to continue our unique support of artists working with the moving image. Over the past nine years we have established a successful framework, including core activity such as the Film London Jarman Award and FLAMIN Productions, which have developed some of the world’s most exciting artists working in this sector, including Turner Prize winner Elizabeth Price and award-winning Ben Rivers.
"As a key element of Film London’s wider talent development strategy to discover and nurture the filmmakers of tomorrow, our work through FLAMIN is hugely important, and ensures artists have the resources available to continue to challenge conventional perceptions of art and film."
