Artists in the Cinema


Artists in the Cinema was a series of new work for cinema. In 2019 and 2020, artists were 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’s cohort included at least one artist based in the North East of England.

The commissioned artists for 2020 were the Karrabing Film Collective, Duncan Marquiss, Onyeka Igwe, and Nicola Singh & Helen Collard. The films launched in Newcastle in February 2020, accompanied by new writing around the films and artist interviews. View more information about each project below.
