HOME Artist Film is a unique project for the production, distribution, exhibition, training and development of artist film. This year we release Rosa Barba’s Subconscious Society and Declan Clarke’s The Most Cruel of all Goddesses and we launch a new project for visual artists making feature films called Feature Expanded.
HOME Artist Film was set up as Cornerhouse Artist Film in 2011 by Sarah Perks to investigate new methods of production, distribution and exhibition. Specifically designed for artist long form and feature film, this project is designed to exploit HOME’s unique bridge between visual art networks, artists and independent film exhibition. Our groundbreaking work in the production, presentation and distribution of artist-led features marks the next chapter in our long-standing support of experimental film and video since Cornerhouse opened in 1985.
Cornerhouse Artist Film first co-commissioned and distributed Turner Prize winner Gillian Wearing’s Self Made (2010), followed by Andrew Kötting’s Swandown (2012). Swandown was selected for competition in the ACID section of Cannes International Film Festival in 2013.
In 2013, Cornerhouse Artist Film completed it’s first in-house feature film, Rough Cut by London-based visual artist Jamie Shovlin, which was shown at the 43rd Rotterdam International Film Festival. 2014 saw the release of Bob and Roberta Smith’s Art Party and a nationwide Art Party was held in over 30 venues on the day the GCSE results were announced.
