The LUX is the most important experimental film archive in the UK, with a rich history dating back to the creation of the London Film-Makers’ Co-op in 1966. Its unparalleled collection is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in artists’ moving image practice in film, video and digital forms, both contemporary and historical.

Now housed in Waterlow Park, Highgate, the LUX offers practical training, film seminars and talks, and access to its archives, as well as organising exhibitions and distributing its artists’ works at home and abroad. It is therefore a great privilege for BIMI to co-curate a termly strand of experimental film events with our LUX colleagues, and to provide a showcase for some of the amazing work that they do. The LUX is also one of our key partners for the Essay Film Festival, facilitating at least one session of the festival every year.
