There'll be FLAMIN Productions

Whitechapel Gallery says that it provides its visitors with exhibitions, artist commissions, collection displays, historic archives, education resources, inspiring art courses, a dining room, and bookshop, but it failed to mention that it has film screenings as well. From now until the 1st December, the gallery will be showing a range or European art films, and shortlisted entries. Many relate to their current exhibition, some are free, and others include discussions with the curators and directors.
