Emerging Film Curators 2022

A man stands with his mermaid

A five-part cinema programme curated by up-and-coming film curators and teams who all took part in the second Emerging Film Curators Lab at the Barbican in June 2022. 

Explore a range of films, assembled by participants in the second Emerging Film Curators Lab at the Barbican.

The selection of films spans the globe to explore interpretations of 'community', and there will be an evening of discussion and spoken word performance following each screening that delves deeper into the themes on screen.

The 2022 Emerging Film Curators Lab, supported by Arts Council England, is a free career development programme designed to give young people a chance to establish themselves in the UK cinema exhibition sector and to widen the range of voices and perspectives on screen.
