Margaret Tait Award: Kate Davis, Charity at GFF17

Mon 20 Feb 2017 / 6.45–7.45pm

Glasgow Film Theatre

Named after acclaimed Scottish experimental filmmaker Margaret Tait, Glasgow Film Festival’s annual award is supported by Creative Scotland and LUX, and recognises Scottish and Scotland based artists who work within film and moving image in an experimental and innovative way.

Join us for the world premiere of Charity (2017) by Kate Davis. Inspired by the ways in which Margaret Tait’s films invite us to contemplate fundamental emotions and everyday activities that are often overlooked, Davis’ new film questions how the essential, but largely invisible and unpaid, processes we employ to care for others and ourselves could be reimagined.

The recipient of the 2017/2018 Margaret Tait Award will be announced at the screening, from shortlisted artists, Jamie Crewe, Sarah Forrest, Margaret Salmon and Kimberley O’Neill.
