Seven short films made by international artists will appear before screenings of selected feature films in UK cinemas, as part of an initiative to bring the visual art world to large scale audiences.

The Artists’ Cinema — a project set up by LUX and the Independent Cinema Office in 2006 — aims to forge a link between the art and film worlds as well as bringing the work of artists to a more mainstream audience.

The seven specially commissioned films — which include Amar Kanwar’s A Love Story (India),Rosalind Nashashibi’s This Quality (UK) and Catherine Sullivan’s The Last Days of British Honduras (US) — will be previewed at London art gallery the Tate Modern, as well as being screened at the market in Cannes.

The five-minute shorts will then be shown before selected feature films at UK cinemas, including Chris Morris’ Four Lions, in UK cinemas from mid May.
