Projections Commissions


The Projections Commissions invite artists to make short films for cinema. Four artists a year are commissioned to make new work to be screened before mainstream feature films at Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle, and at partner cinemas across the UK. Each year selected artists include at least one North East based artist.

This year’s commissioned artists are James Richards, Evan Ifekoya, Sophio Medoidze, and Susie Green & Simon Bayliss. View more information about each project below, including artist interviews and new writing responding to the films by Mike Sperlinger, Nephertiti Schandorf, Francesca Gavin and Joseph P Henry.

Partner cinemas

From March 2019, the Projections Commissions will screen at a network of partner cinemas across the UK. We’re grateful to the cinemas for their support.
