WE ARE HERE is a series of five artists’ film programmes and installations curated by Tendai John Mutambu for the British Council and LUX, an international arts agency that supports and promotes artists’ moving image practices. WE ARE HERE investigates how some of the UK’s most outstanding emerging and established contemporary artists disrupt old narratives and encourage new global discussions on topics such as climate change, national identity, marginality, intimacy, community and the future of the city.

We are working with Anomaa Rajakaruna of Agenda 14 (Private) Limited, who is also the festival director/curator of Jaffna International Cinema Festival, Colombo International Women’s Film Festival and Agenda 14 Short Film Festival to organise online screenings and a curator talk at these festivals, to be held in the later part of 2021. Our focus at the Agenda 14 Short Film Festival will be on Environment/Climate Change supporting the COP26 initiative.
