The Art & the Moving Image initiative is a rare kind of investment in the Australian arts community and sits outside current funding models. 

It reflects a commitment to support the practice evolving at the intersection of film, art and new media. There is no application process. The commissioned artists have found the time and support an invaluable space for their artistic practice. While the national partnership of galleries combined with a film festival provides significant professional bounty, profile, artistic challenge and acknowledgement.  Previously commissioned works have gone on to national and international acclaim.

The Art & The Moving Image has been supported by Carriageworks, the Anne and Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, University of South Australia and the University of Western Australia Cultural Precinct.

In 2021 a new work by Soda_Jerk will be unveiled, commissioned in partnership with the Anne and Gordon Samstag Museum of Art.

Previous Art & The Moving Image works include:
