MISSION & OBJECTIVE
STILL / MOVING DSLR Film Festival is dedicated to bringing original works and emerging talent to London's vibrant, multicultural arts community. It was created as a platform for new and established photographers, artists and filmmakers to interact and educate.
STILL / MOVING was inspired by the development of HD video-capable digital SLR cameras that have revolutionized film-making. The accessibility of this technology has led to a creative revolution; expanding creative freedom, mobilizing and given voice to ﬁlm-makers previously denied the opportunity. As creative and professional boundaries blur, ground-breaking work is being produced by photographers, artists and filmmakers using the DSLR camera as their primary tool. Until now, this convergence and creative phenomenon has not been fully explored or discussed and Photofusion have programmed the STILL / MOVING Film Festival to do just that.
STILL / MOVING is created and coordinated by Photofusion [www.photofusion.org] London's largest independent photography centre and a non-profit organisation funded by Arts Council England. The festival is sponsored by Warner Music UK, in partnership with Picturehouse Cinemas (Ritzy) and The London Borough of Lambeth.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The first STILL /MOVING DSLR Film Festival is coming to London this September. Brought to you by Photofusion, London’s largest independent photography resource centre, STILL / MOVING will be an eight-day festival celebrating the ways that photographers, artists and film-makers are engaging with DSLR technology.

- events, panel discussions and master classes.
