Screening: LUX Scotland and SQIFF present Dani Leventhal

Posted on October 5th, 2016 by LUX Scotland


Friday 28 October, 7pm
Transmission, Glasgow
Free, not ticketed

Presented in association with SQIFF and Transmission, American artist Dani Leventhal visits Glasgow to show and discuss her recent video work.

Her videos are disjunctive, diaristic and often feature people who become the unassuming subjects of her work. Describing her working process, Leventhal says, ” I start with a subject that I care deeply about / I concentrate on fear, desire, anger, confusion, and love. / I concentrate on the emotional relationships between humans, humans and animals, and humans and their environments. / I am particularly interested in the way we develop based on our experiences in childhood, and then the process of undoing it.” Presenting her shorts alongside her recent collaboration ‘Hard As Opal’ with Jared Buckhiester, Leventhal will also present a preview of her in-progress work, ‘Strangely Ordinary This Devotion’, a collaboration with Sheilah Wilson.

Workshops: #AMIF16 with Ed Webb-Ingall

Posted on September 1st, 2016 by LUX Scotland



Friday 2 September, 5-8pm
Monday 26 September, 5-8pm
Tuesday 18 October, 5-8pm
Tramway, Glasgow

As part of the Artists Moving Image Festival (AMIF), filmmaker and writer Ed Webb-Ingall will be running three workshops that explore ideas of intervention, disruption and interruption in the context of the cinema. The results of these workshops will be presented at Tramway on November 6th as part of #AMIF2016.

The workshops will invite artists and filmmakers to think about what it means to intervene into the cinema auditorium in order to disrupt, expand or push at the edges of what might be expected in that space. We will ask questions such as:
What is or isn’t allowed here? Who is in charge? What is possible in this space? What are the limits of this space? Who decides on them? What does it mean if someone has paid for something? Where does the responsibility for care lay?

The workshops are available to SUPERLUX members free of charge and will take place at Tramway, Glasgow on Friday 2nd September, Monday 26th September and Tuesday 18th October, developing towards a public presentation at #AMIF16 on Sunday 6th November. No filmmaking experience is necessary, but it is important that you can attend all three of the workshops. Tickets available until 5pm Thursday 1 September.

Part of Tramway‘s annual Artist Moving Image Festival.

Screening: LUX Scotland presents ‘Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years, Plus Shorts’

Posted on August 30th, 2016 by Programme Assistants

Sunday 4 September, 7.15pm
GFT, Glasgow
Book Tickets

As part of September’s Crossing The Line at GFT, Phoebe Amis has curated a film programme celebrating subversive uses of anger, risk, precarity and opacity by German filmmakers Helke Sander, Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, and Dagmar Schultz.

Schulz’s feature-length portrait of Audre Lorde shows the eponymous African-American poet galvanising the Afro-German movement and anti-racist feminism. The documentary demonstrates another history of 1980s West German and North Atlantic social movements, rearranging the legacy of feminist filmmaker Sander. Sander’s short film about destitution and direct action unpicks narratives of social change and debates about what a feminist looks like, while Boudry/Lorenz examine the capacity for resistance in the presence of a ‘visible’ enemy.

This screening is part of GFT’s Crossing the Line strand, kindly supported by Goethe Institut.

Screening: Anne-Marie Copestake, ‘Back As Front, Inside As Out’, LUX Scotland @MIMC

Posted on June 16th, 2016 by LUX Scotland


Friday 8 July, 7-9pm
MacArts, Galashiels
Tickets available on the door

Anne-Marie Copestake screening, discussion and selections from the LUX collection. Part of MIMC’s ‘Out Of The Box’ programme.

For this special screening, the Moving Image Makers Collective and LUX Scotland have invited Anne-Marie Copestake to present the first part of her new film about Margaret Benyon, a pioneer of holography as an artistic practice. She has also selected a number of works from the LUX collection which will frame an open conversation after the screenings with Luke Collins (Deputy Director, LUX Scotland).

‘Back As Front, Inside As Out’ (2015) considers the early period as holography developed focusing on Benyon’s explorations into esoteric subject matter in unfamiliar media, foregrounding artistic pursuit through rigorous action, optimism and discovery. Other works in this screening include Cathy Sisler Aberrant Motion 1 (1993) and Steve Sutcliffe‘s Plum (2012).

Anne-Marie Copestake is a prolific and subtle artist who has lived and worked in Glasgow since the 90s when she initiated Trigger Tonic, in which she paired local with visiting artists for intense, revealing conversations. In 2011 Copestake was an early recipient of the Margaret Tait award, producing ‘And Under That‘ (2012) which developed visual associations and a scenario wherein a questioning of histories and potential comes from two older women, who are not presented as fixed or finished but with possibilities and ideas surrounding them. Copestake works across many forms (moving image, drawing, sculpture, music) and often in collaboration (with Fred Pederson, as part of Poster Club and as part of the band Muscles of Joy) bringing a delicate but rigorous touch to all her work.
LUX Scotland is a dedicated support and promotion agency for artists working with moving image in Scotland. Founded in 2014 with a new office at the CCA in Glasgow, LUX Scotland seeks to support artists working with moving image in Scotland through a range of activities including programming, professional development through our SUPERLUX programme and research through access to the collection. Please visit our website for full details ( or get in touch with us through email or on social media.

The ‘Out Of The Box’ programme is supported by Film Hub Scotland.

Kate Davis wins 2016 Margaret Tait Award

Posted on June 7th, 2016 by LUX Scotland

The winner of the 2016 Margaret Tait Award is Glasgow-based artist Kate Davis. Shortlisted along with artists Aideen Doran, Hardeep Pandhal, Catherine Street and Stina Wirfelt, Davis will receive a £10,000 commission to create a new piece of work, and the opportunity to present this work at Glasgow Film Festival in 2017.

Davis’ 2014 work ‘Weight‘ was produced as part of the Artists and Archives: Artists’ Moving Image at the BBC residency programme, supported by BBC Scotland, LUX and Creative Scotland. Taking a 1961 BBC documentary about Barbara Hepworth as its starting point, ‘Weight’ explores how televised depictions of creativity constructed our understanding of artistic production and other forms of labour.

On winning the 2016 Margaret Tait Award, Davis said, “’Working with the moving image has become an increasingly important part of my practice in recent years and the Margaret Tait Award will be invaluable in enabling me to realise my most ambitious and experimental moving image work to date. Inspired by the ways in which Margaret Tait’s films invite us to contemplate fundamental emotions and everyday activities that are often overlooked, I propose to investigate how the essential, but largely invisible and unpaid, processes we employ to care for others and ourselves can inform both the subject of my film and the way it is made.”

Born in New Zealand, Kate Davis lives and works in Glasgow. Previous projects include Cinenova Presents Now Showing, LUX Cornwall, St Ives; LUX/ BBC Artists and Archive commission; GENERATION exhibition, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art; HOUSE WORK CASTLE MILK WOMAN HOUSE, Glasgow Women’s Library; Art Under Attack, Tate Britain. Forthcoming projects include a solo exhibition at Stills, Edinburgh.

The 2016 panel consisted of a diverse range of experts and curators in the field of visual arts and cinema, including Kirsten Body (Inverness Museum and Art Gallery), Sophia Hao (Cooper Gallery, Dundee), Paul Pieroni (GoMA, Glasgow), Gayle Meikle (artist/curator), Emma Nicolson (ATLAS Arts, Skye), Laura Simpson (Hospitalfield Arbroath), Stephen Sutcliffe (artist and previous Margaret Tait Award winner), Mark Thomas (Creative Scotland), Luke Collins (LUX Scotland) and Jane Hartshorn (Glasgow Film). 21 prominent Scottish artists were nominated for the award, and five were then shortlisted and asked to submit proposals, from which Davis was selected.

In 1976, EIFF hosted two events: the ‘Psychoanalysis and Cinema Symposium’ and the ‘International Forum on Avant-Garde Film’. Forty years on, this year’s discussions look back at one of the most pivotal moments in the Festival’s history to explore its longstanding relationship with alternative film culture.

Through a series of intimate discussions, this day-long event interrogates the relationship between form and politics, and seeks out the synergies between then and now. Speakers include:
Director Lizzie Borden in conversation with LUX Scotland Director Isla Leaver-Yap;
Director and feminist theorist filmmaker Laura Mulvey in conversation with writer and lecturer Laura Guy;
and artist William Raban in conversation with British filmmaker Sarah Turner.

Posted on May 25th, 2016 by LUX Scotland


Thursday 23 June, 6.10pm
Friday 24 June, 8.30pm
Book Tickets

A powerful and rarely seen classic of feminist filmmaking, Lizzie Borden’s ‘Regrouping’ returns to Edinburgh 40 years after its original premiere at EIFF 1976. Screened here for only the fourth time ever, this is a rare chance to see Borden’s first feature film.

‘Regrouping’ explores the dynamics among the members of a women’s group. As Borden interviews people who know them, such as Joan Jonas, the group shoots ‘artistic’ scenes of themselves – but Borden feels they aren’t fully grappling with issues of sexuality and politics. Are they a serious group – or just friends? After showing an early edit of the film to the group, its members, upset, closed ranks. Undeterred, Borden incorporates the group’s arguments into another edit, filming larger groups commenting both on the original one and on consciousness-raising groups in general.

This screening is a co-presentation by EIFF’s Black Box curator Kim Knowles, and LUX Scotland.

Screening: LUX Scotland Presents ‘Nightcleaners’

Posted on May 11th, 2016 by LUX Scotland

Sunday 5 June, 8pm
GFT, Glasgow
Book Tickets

LUX Scotland presents ‘Nightcleaners’ (1975), a documentary made by members of the Berwick Street Collective. The film follows the campaign to unionise women who cleaned office blocks at night, who were victimised and underpaid. Intending at the outset to make a ‘campaign film’, the Collective was forced to turn to more avant-garde forms in order to represent the forces at work between the cleaners, the Cleaner’s Action Group and the unions, as well as the complex nature of the campaign itself. An intensely self-reflexive film that implicates both filmmakers and audiences in the process of precarious and invisible labour, it has become recognised as a key work of the 1970s and an important precursor to current political art practice.

This screening is part of GFT’s Crossing the Line strand.

Screening: LUX Scotland Presents ‘Pain Is…’ by Stephen Dwoskin

Posted on March 29th, 2016 by Programme Assistants


Sunday 1 May, 8pm
GFT, Glasgow
Book Tickets

LUX Scotland presents Stephen Dwoskin’s powerful Pain Is… (1997), an unflinching film that examines the role of pain within society. Attempting “to make an image of pain”, Dwoskin’s feature is practical and philosophical: a seamless blend of film culture and social activism.

“Pain Is… combines interviews, archival footage and Dwoskin’s thoughtful voice-over to arrive at a scrupulous anatomy of pain (encompassing disease, dental work and sadomasochism). The interviews range from those who suffer from chronic pain to those who find pleasure in wilfully inflicting pain.” (Dennis Lim, director of Film at Lincoln Centre NYC)

A teacher, designer, photographer, film director and producer, Dwoskin (1939-2012) began making films in New York in 1959 against the avant-garde backdrop of Jonas Mekas’ Film Co-op and Andy Warhol’s Factory. Dwoskin went on to become a co-founder of the London Film-Makers’ Co-Op, which was established 50 years ago and is a precursor to LUX and LUX Scotland.

This screening is introduced by LUX Scotland Director Isla Leaver-Yap for GFT’s Crossing the Line strand and is presented as part of The Radical Film Network Festival & Unconference.

SUPERLUX Dialogues: Distribution, a subversive practice?

Posted on March 23rd, 2016 by Programme Assistants


7pm Tuesday 5 April

Collective, Edinburgh

Free tickets for SUPERLUX members

Led by LUX Distribution Manager, Matt Carter, this is an open forum discussion about the many forms of distribution as a practice.

LUX is the largest distributor of artists’ moving image in Europe, with over 7,000 works in its collection and titles that date from silent cinema of the American avant-garde to works made in 2016. But what is distribution? How does it work for artists? Is it more than a service?

Drawing on case studies from Modern Edinburgh Film School, the Walker Arts Centre (Minneapolis) and Ruangrupa (Jakarta) to consider national and international projects, this event will explore the practical and conceptual potential for distribution, considering it as a practice, as subversion, and as preservation.

SUPERLUX Dialogues is LUX Scotland’s ongoing series of conversations that invite guest speakers to explore practical issues for artists working with the moving image.

LUX Scotland’s new membership programme SUPERLUX is generously supported by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. If you’re not yet signed up, it’s free and easy to become a member, sign up now or at our events to keep up-to-date on future opportunities.
