Wednesday 14 October – Saturday 17 October 2015

Launched in 2007, Frieze Film is a series of new films commissioned from established and emerging artists and premiered annually as part of Frieze Projects, Frieze London’s non-profit curated programme.

This year, Frieze Film is curated by Nicola Lees and supported by Channel 4’s Random Acts, who will also broadcast the commissions.

The artists participating in Frieze Film 2015 are:

Charles Atlas with Rashaun Mitchell + Silas Riener
Atlas is collaborating with New York choreographers Silas Riener and Rashaun Mitchell on a short video featuring dancers Cori Kresge and Hiroki Ichinose. Shot this summer at Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) in upstate New York, the film is produced as an accompaniment to a long-form stereoscopic moving image work currently in development, this work will be made specifically for the televisual context.

Xavier Cha
Cha will produce a series of short films capturing actors as they battle conflicting emotions, held in tense states of physical and psychological discord. While outwardly (and non-linguistically) expressing an extreme emotion, such as livid rage, a more subtle emotion emerges from beneath the surface. Both emotions function as foreign agents attempting to gain dominance, or hijack the vehicle of the actor’s facial expression and body. This new work continues Cha’s exploration of the body, individual, and self, and how these are contained, expressed, and mediated.

Gery Georgieva
Georgieva will produce a film commission centering around the culture of Bulgarian chalga (pop-folk) nightclubs. Contrast- ing footage of her native country’s pop culture with other parallel environments, Georgieva is interested in how we configure and reconfigure our cultural identities.

Thirteen Black Cats
Thirteen Black Cats will present 1/56, the first iteration of a multi-authored moving image work in which filmmakers and artists from around the world are invited to participate in making a serial film and video work inspired by Chilean author Roberto Bolaño’s novel Antwerp (2002), consisting of fifty-six chapters. 1/56 is produced in partnership with the 31st Biennial of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana, curated by Nicola Lees.
