The Rough Cut + Irene Aristizábal

The Rough Cut is a free event for new work and work-in-progress by artists working with the moving image. For artists, it’s a useful way to share and get feedback on your work in a supportive environment. For everyone else, it’s a chance to see interesting new films.

Each session is moderated by a guest curator or artist, who also gives an introduction to their own practice.

See here for details of how to submit your work.
