Charity description

Film and Video Umbrella logo
Film and Video Umbrella is the UK’s foremost commissioner, producer and touring partner of world class moving-image works by artists. For three decades FVU has led the way in championing new artist filmmakers and supporting innovative work in film and video. During that time we have commissioned many of the foremost figures in the field, including a number of future Turner Prize winners, whilst working in close collaboration with diverse institutional partners, nationally and internationally.  
Our commitment to bringing this very vibrant art form to under-represented people has seen FVU work with a wide range of audiences, including youth groups, disability organisations, older people and minority ethnic groups around the Country. We are expanding FVU's outreach and education work in 2018 – 2022.
We are proud to be recognised as a National Portfolio Organisation by Arts Council England, but each year we need to raise a further £400k from other sources to support the full ambition of our artistic programme and to take our artworks to  more communities across the UK. 

For a donation of £500 you will become an FVU Friend, and be invited to all our breakfasts, private views and other events. You will also receive exclusive project updates, a special thanks on the FVU website and an artist signed FVU publication of your choice.
By donating £5,000 you will join our group of FVU Luminaries - cultural philanthropists who believe in directly supporting early-stage artists to realise their potential, as well as in delivering world class art to under-represented communities. As a Luminary you will receive all of the benefits of the Friends scheme but also be offered the option to associate your contribution with an FVU commission of your choice, and be personally credited for your contribution to that work. You will also have the opportunity to spend time with the artist whose work you have supported.
At whatever level you give, your gift will be valued by FVU, by the artists that we commission and by the audiences that we serve.
