Tenderflix is an international experimental film and video competition organised by Tenderpixel. In its 9th year in 2016 we received over 350 submissions for the theme, Better Living. Originally related to the design field, this notion genuinely echoes a wider strive to imagine better structures for building all aspects of our lives – most importantly in terms of aesthetics, economics and social relations.
The shortlisted 11 films will be screened on 25 November 2016 at The Horse Hospital in London, where the winner of the competition will be announced and given the £1000 cash prize.

I’m delighted to have been selected for the Climate Change in Residence: Future Scenarios, along with artists Lena Dobrowolska & Teo Ormond-Skeaping and Zoë Svendson.
Working with artists’ moving image, photography, installation, theatre and performance, the chosen artists will undertake a new kind of residency programme which embeds them within climate research and policy knowledge networks, rather than within one institution. They will engage with climate scenarios, and explore and extend the ways in which society engages with the range of possible future climates.
Announced at Jerwood Space on Monday night, Shonagh Manson, Director of Jerwood Charitable Foundation said “These networked residencies will put culture and artistic practice at the heart of conversations about our climate futures. The artists selected have demonstrated a keen hunger for dialogue and exchange around these issues, which passionately inform their work. These residencies will harness the imaginations of talented artistic individuals for the benefit of the scenario planning network whilst simultaneously providing a unique research environment in which each artist can further their own practice and projects.”
