Moving Image Artists (MIA)

Moving Image Artists logo

Friends we have an important announcement!

Film Panic Magazine as it once was is no more, after 6 years of publishing and programming under this name we have decided it is time to draw it to a close. Our activities in writing, publishing, programming and creating networking events will continue but now under a new banner and with a new team of collaborators. We’d like now to introduce you all to our new project Moving Image Artists.

Moving Image Artists (MIA) is an organisation dedicated to supporting and cultivating contemporary moving image art and experimental film, we are currently based in London where the hub of our activities will take place, this includes screenings, exhibitions and the Moving Image Salon. We will continue to publish articles and interviews through our website where you can also find an archive of previous Film Panic writings:

We would like to thank everyone who has been a part of Film Panic over the past few years and we hope that you will join us on this next exciting venture!

If you are based in London please join us for the next Moving Image Salon which takes place on 11th Oct, book here:

Studio Diary Series: Land | Sea | Sky at Hambre Forum

Studio Diary Series Land Sea Sky (2018, Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais)

The wonderful people at hambre have release a selection of films from our Studio Diary Series on the Hambre Forum. This selection focuses on the Studio Diaries which could be considered as landscape films. To accompany the films we have written a short introductory text about our interest in filming nature, landscapes and the weather. Watch and read here.

As a part of this invitation to release our films on Hambre we were asked to recommend another artist’s film to also be featured on the forum, we put forward a short film by Edwin Rostron whose stunning visionary animations were recently featured at the Moving Image Salon, check it out here.

Many thanks to Sebastian Wiedemann!
