Enjoy a screening of this year’s Film London Jarman Award shortlist. This selection of films once again illustrates the spirit of imagination and inventiveness within the medium, with works that explore both new practices in relation to digital image making and fresh approaches to traditional filmmaking. 

From a sci-fi 3D presentation of the future, to a circus sideshow; from lurid comic-strip style animation to rich 35mm; and from a modernist architectural gem to Grand Theft Auto, these artists employ different tactics to express their engagement with important political topics.
