Artbank and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) have announced a new unique joint commission Artbank + ACMI Commission.
This new initiative over three years, aims to support artists and/or filmmakers working between film and art. The Artbank + ACMI Commission will award an artist or filmmaker $70,000 and an ACMI X Industry membership to support the production of new work.
The new commission is designed to engage with cinema, experimental film, artists' film and the avant-garde to create ambiguous, experimental works that could find a home on the cinema screen and/or in the gallery space.
Works commissioned through the Artbank + ACMI Commission will enter into the Artbank and ACMI collections.
Applications close 5 pm Friday 15 September.
