Projections is a programme based around artists' moving image at Tyneside Cinema.

Artists’ work in the moving image is invariably encountered only in gallery spaces. We think it belongs in the cinema too - and as part of its main programme. Projections places artists and their work at the centre of the cinema, and the cinema at the centre of artists' moving image.

Alongside regular events, Projections will support and develop the careers of artists and curators. Our regular open calls present the opportunity to test new ideas and experiment with the cinema in an unusually expansive way, while an annual series of commissions for cinemas will take artists' work to a wide audience, and a programme of practice development initiatives offers possibilities for artistic and critical engagement for emerging and established artists alike.

This new approach marks a shift from our previous gallery-based programme and presents new possibilities for artists and audiences. We hope you'll join us soon.

Tyneside Cinema is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and receives funding to support our work with artists.

I can’t convey how hypnotic, brilliant and strange DECOMPRESSION was....Sally Golding and Spatial have created something really special. What an interesting and special night at Tyneside Cinema, we need more rebellious and brave events like this! ‬
