Discover the filmmakers of tomorrow with Playback – an interactive exhibition showcasing award-winning new short films from across the country


This summer we host Playback, a nationally touring exhibition that brings together over 150 short films made by young artist filmmakers.

These remarkable and award-winning short films made by emerging talent span a range of art forms and topics – from an animated take on the refugee crisis, to the dark dreamscapeof a zombie apocalypse.The exhibition is made up of individual touchscreens –choose what to watch from drama, comedy, dance, and spoken word to discover the filmmakers of tomorrow.

Playback travels across the length and breadth of the country to England’s major galleries, cinemas and arts venues until March 2018.

The exhibition is funded by Arts Council England and is a joint initiative with Channel 4 and Random Acts.
