If you want to find the next big thing in British film art, then look no further.
The spotlight is about to fall on a select group of the UK's finest and freshest up-and-coming artists whose medium is the moving image.


Selected by a panel of their more established peers - each of whom was nominated for the Jarman Award 2012 - Britain's brightest rising stars of the film art firmament are to showcase their cutting-edge work at a series of screenings to be held at venues across the country.


And not only can you experience these artists' work on the big screen, you also have the opportunity to meet them. The tour begins in Nottingham on May 29 before travelling to Brighton, Newcastle, Glasgow, Liverpool and London. The artists will be present at the screenings to introduce their work and also to engage in conversation with audiences.


Artists who will feature in the Selected III programme include Emma Alonze, Sophie Lisa Beresford, Nicholas Brooks, Mat Fleming, Piotr Krzymowski, Naheed Raza, Frances Scott, Daniel Shanken, Cheryl Simmons and Edward Thomasson.


Their work has been chosen by artists shortlisted for the 2012 Film London Jarman Award - Brad Butler and Karen Mirza, Aura Satz, Ben Rivers, Benedict Drew, James Richards, Shezad Dawood, Nathaniel Mellors, Matt Stokes, Marcus Coates and Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead.


Selected III has been produced in partnership with videoclub and Film London Artists' Moving Image Network (FLAMIN), with the aim of showcasing and celebrating some of the most innovative emerging talent in artists' moving image.
