The Artists’ Moving Image Festival (AMIF) was established in 2012 to provide a platform for the discussion and presentation of artists’ moving image, showcasing forms of production and research alongside screenings and discursive events. This year the festival has been co-programmed by artists and writers Tako Taal and Adam Benmakhlouf and includes a series of screenings and events scheduled to follow the lunar calendar across the rest of 2021. The event is hosted by LUX Scotland in partnership with the international art-space Tramway in Glasgow.
In this episode we hear from LUX Scotland Director Kitty Anderson on the artists' moving image scene in Scotland and how LUX have supported artist over the last year. Tako and Adam share their experience and approach to programming the festival and reflect on one of the works they have selected.
