• BFMAF – Fact or Fiction

      Davies, Huw; Taylor, Peter; University of Derby (Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, 2015-09)
      The 11th edition of the Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival (BFMAF), ‘Fact or Fiction’ (September 2015) questioned the ambiguous relationships between fact and fantasy, documentary and narrative and reality and myth. The research contribution of Davies relates to the curation of the Artists’ Trail / Installations; a promenade exhibition of artists’ film and video contextualised by publication which links together a number of different site-specific architectural locations within the Elizabethan Ramparts. The 2015 edition featured the work of 40 artists and filmmakers from 20 different countries and included 12 UK premiers and 4 specifically commissioned works. The commissions (selected from an international call) provide the opportunity for the creation of original new works as a response to the Festival theme and environmental location. The audience attendance was 8910
