ON THE MOVE

On the Move is a touring programme of experimental film from the Scottish Borders-based Moving Image Makers Collective.

As the first self-curated programme of films by MIMC, On the Move speaks to the notions of intervening – with assistance from the moving image – upon one’s immediate environment. By turns tentative and assertive, these works find rhythm, music and movement in acquired objects, found phenomena and even silence; each, in its own way, argues the case for environment as a conditioning device: a way by which one begins to think about negotiating the world, and the basis for any aesthetic response to it.

On the Move received its world premiere in May 2019 at the ninth edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival. The Moving Image Makers Collective emerged from the Scottish Borders Community Filmmaking Initiative, a series of workshops run by Alchemy Film & Arts in 2014.

On the Move is produced in partnership with Alchemy Film & Arts. To host On the Move, or for more information, please contact Rachael Disbury, Production Director at Alchemy Film & Arts: rachael@alchemyfilmandarts.org.uk.
