We are delighted to announce our participation in the forthcoming publication On & For Production and Distribution (2018 – 2021). The second publication from On & For , it forms a printed memory of the project in its second edition.
Over the course of its initiative, On & For aimed at sharing knowledge and experience, and this book functions the same. The book gathers and presents for the first time, three year’s worth of activity in and around artists’ moving image with essays and images by curators, artist-filmmakers and producers from different geographies and career-stages, the publication hopes to open up easier navigations through the medium, and the economies, organisations and ecosystems in which it circulates. Part For Dummies how-to guide, part yearbook, for the reader to peruse and use as they see fit.
On & For Production and Distribution is a cooperative project that is conceived to advance and strengthen the field of artists’ moving image, a space for research, learning and production initiated in 2018 by Auguste Orts (BE) in collaboration with Kaunas International Film Festival (LT), LUX/LUX Scotland (UK), and Nordland Kunst ‑og filmhøgskole (NO), with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, after a prior edition of On & For Production in 2015 – 2016.
Over the past three years it has conceived five talks and screenings, three ‘Case Study’ public seminars, two symposia, five ‘Work Sessions’ in support of sixteen artists’ moving image projects, three exhibitions, three roundtables, and five workshops in six countries and a digital space.

Image description: A black and white photograph depicts a silhouetted figure with cabling and microphones at their feet. They are backlit, only the folds of their clothing against their shoulders and the curl of their hair is visible to us. On top of the figure sits text and a logo, which reads ‘On & For Production And Distribution’. The On & For logo is two overlapping circles, their thin white lines converging to create a leaf-like shape at the centre, the right hand circle is cut across with a horizontal ’T’ shape, which divides the leaf-like shape vertically down the centre.
