Artists in the Cinema


Artists in the Cinema is a series of new work for cinema. Four artists a year are commissioned to make short films to be screened before mainstream feature films – by stealth – at Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle, and at partner cinemas across the UK. Each year selected artists include at least one artist based in the North East of England.

This year’s commissioned artists are the Karrabing Film Collective, Duncan Marquiss, Onyeka Igwe, and Nicola Singh & Helen Collard. The films will launch in Newcastle in February 2020, when new writing around the films, artist interviews and more will be available here. View more information about each project below.

Partner cinemas

Our commissioned films screen at a network of partner cinemas across the UK. Participating cinemas for 2019 are below: we’re grateful to them for their support, and will announce 2020 partners early in the new year.
