Film Free and Easy – in the Studio

We are now looking for ‘expressions of interest’ for the next Film Free and Easy on Thursday 22 October 2015, 20:00-22:00

This ‘bring and show’ event takes place over one evening. On this occasion, all material will be shown in the studios of Primary artists (coinciding with the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2015 exhibition in the public areas of the building).

After the success of the last event, we are particularly keen to encourage experimental contributions in any format, which may include: video, installation, performance, the showing of archival material, shadow puppets to CGI spectaculars, films made on a camera phone, to home video tapes you’ve always wanted to see projected! – Anything that can be projected or shown on a screen in some form is welcome.

We will do our utmost to accommodate any medium (film, digital, VHS, slide, live webcast).

Email: moc.l1532330632iamg@1532330632ysaed1532330632naeer1532330632fmlif1532330632 before Monday 12 October if you would like to take part. Please include in your email a short description of what you want to show, including duration and medium, and any links or documentation.

Please note that you are expected to bring along anything you want to show and be there in person during the evening.

If you have nothing to show, don’t worry, just come along and enjoy the event.


Film Free and Easy is an event devised by artists at Primary to explore new ways of showing moving-image works. Within this one-night installation across the various spaces at Primary, different material will be shown respecting its original media, projected or screened using different devices and settings.

The structure of the event is based on the audience bringing along the material that will be shown. Accommodating any type of material that can be projected or displayed on a screen, including documentary, art film, feature, commercial, installations, live manipulated image, sound work, old TV, documentation, personal material, phone videos, slides, compilations or fragments. No restriction is placed on the materials.

The programme for each night will be assembled from what is submitted. The principle of respect for material will be observed throughout: Super 8 film will be projected on a film projector, VHS on an age appropriate monitor or projector, HD video on a digital projector etc.

The call out for material will be two weeks before each event.

Successfully trialed as a one-off event in 2014, Film Free and Easy returns with three events at Primary in 2015:

Thursday, 13 August
Thursday, 22 October
Thursday, 3 December
