FAMLAB is a British Council initiative that started in 2016 and is now part of an on-going programme supporting performers, composers, filmmakers and producers working in the artistic space where the two worlds of film and music converge.
In March 2022, FAMLAB IV (Film, Archive, Music) musicians, from Coventry, across the UK and around the world, gathered together online to spend a week immersed in an exploration of the challenges and rich potential for collaborative film archive and music projects. Composers and artists took part in a series of workshops composing for archive and screen; attended public talks from leading artists in the field of film composing and a public ‘sharing’ event as part of Deliaphonic.
FAMLAB IV was a collaboration between the British Council’s Film and Music programme, the British Film Institute and Sheffield’s Sensoria festival of film and music.
As part of Coventry UK City of Culture 2021, this fourth FAMLAB also joins forces to work in partnership with Coventry’s The Tin Music and Arts, and Deliaphonic – an annual celebration of the life and work of Coventry born electronica pioneer, Delia Derbyshire.
