Prototype Care Package: Experimental films direct to your inbox

Curator Lauren Carroll Harris' utopian ideals persist in the screen sector's darkest days as she launches a follow-up to last year's 'Prototype' series.

Over this period she distributed original commissioned works of video art, experimental film, and moving image art from a range of Australian creators to her subscribers via weekly email. The project developed out of her academic research into a crisis she identified in Australian film distribution that typically excluded artists like her: women, experimental artists, and others underrepresented or under-served in the industry due to their form or identity.
