Edinburgh Artists’ Moving Image Festival

I am the director of Edinburgh Artists’ Moving Image Festival (EAMIF), which celebrates contemporary art, video art, experimental film and film by artists. I won the Creative Edinburgh’s Leadership Award 2016 for his work on EAMIF and Pollyanna. Having delivered festicals in 2015 and 2016, EAMIF has returned with one-off screenings in 2019 and 2020 at The Fruitmarket Gallery, and EAMIF’s first Glasgow event.
