Film Exposed brings together a series of short films by some of the most exciting and thought-provoking artists working in the UK. We showcase recent works by Maeve Brennan, Mikhail Karikis, Richard Whitby and Hetain Patel.

Taking their ideas and inspiration from the world around us, the artists’ films open up new ways of thinking about the important issues of today, as they make work that responds to climate catastrophe, migration and bringing marginal voices into the mainstream.

Screening a new film fortnightly, we currently focus on Maeve Brennan ‘Listening in the Dark’. Humans are horribly blind to the effect they have on the natural environment. Yet all around us those repercussions reverberate. Her film takes a subtle but penetrating sounding of the extent of this man-made incursion into nature by considering the nocturnal habits of bats.

Film Exposed is brought to you in collaboration with Film and Video Umbrella, who lead the way in championing new talent and promoting innovative ideas in moving image.
