Canary Wharf Screen
Canary Wharf Screen is an innovative motion-picture screening programme initiated by Art on the Underground. Presented on one of the capital’s largest public projection screens, this exciting seasonal programme presents leading contemporary and historical artists’ moving image for our customers, staff and visitors free of charge. The inaugural 2012 series is programmed in collaboration with Film and Video Umbrella, Animate Projects, LUX and British Film Institute (BFI), four of the UK’s finest moving image organisations.

This event celebrates the launch of the second season ‘Move on Up’ by Animate Projects.

Move on Up
Katerina Athanasopoulou, Suky Best, Susan Collins, Simon Faithfull, Petra Freeman, Dryden Goodwin, Stuart Hilton, Andrew Kötting, Joe Magee & Alistair Gentry, Andy Martin, Carolina Melis & Susanne Flender, Kayla Parker, Tal Rosner, Semiconductor, Alan Warburton and Run Wrake.

Move on Up is a festival of dynamic, exciting, provocative and beautiful films made by UK-based artists working with animation over last 20 years. All 16 films have been selected from the Animate Collection, the premier online resource for experimental animation. The earlier films were commissioned for Arts Council England and Channel 4’s renowned animation scheme, AnimateTV (1990 to 2009) and the later films were originally commissioned for online exhibition. The artworks use a wide range of animation techniques and styles to explore ideas of place, offering us visions of new worlds or ways to re­imagine the world we already know.

Animate Projects
Animate Projects is the only arts charity in the UK to champion experimental animation. Animate Projects was established in 2007 with the aim to support artists, to share the Animate Collection at animateprojects.org, and to produce and present work for television, gallery, cinema and online.
