Tramway and LUX Scotland are pleased to announce that the eighth edition of the annual Artists’ Moving Image Festival (AMIF) will take place at Tramway on Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 November 2019. 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’s festival will be programmed by Emmie McLuskey, Kimberley O’Neill, and Ima-Abasi Okon.

AMIF is presented and produced as a collaboration between Tramway and LUX Scotland, funded by Creative Scotland as part of Tramway’s core programme with additional support from LUX. The AMIF Residency is generously supported by Cove Park.
