I’m Andy Howlett, an artist and filmmaker based in Birmingham, UK. I’m interested in walking, concrete, guerrilla heritage and expanded cinema. Here are some of my films.

Stuff I’m doing

  • Paradise Lost: History in the Un-Making - A feature length video-essay investigating the untimely demise of John Madin’s brutalist Central Library. Successfully crowdfunded in 2016, to be released (hopefully) in 2017.

  • The Magic Cinema - A DIY film night with “open reel” policy - bring along a short film and we’ll show it (no actual reel involved). The Magic Cinema also provides a testing ground for more experimental material that brings live/performance elements into the cinematic setting. Building on this we’re teaming up with Home For Waifs and Strays for a Live Art Cinema called IT’S ALIVE!

  • Video Strolls - A Community of artists and filmmakers who make work concerned with place, people and journeying. We host regular public screenings at festivals and we have a Film of the Month column at Caught by the River.

  • Cross City Walks - A walking project bisecting cities in straight lines with Pete Ashton.

  • Dream 53 - A psychogeographical live art project invoking the spirit of a lost Birmingham Surrealist film. Developed as part of the first Homegrown artist development programme in 2016.

  • Scalarama - The annual celebration of cinema for everyone, by everyone, everywhere, every September, forever. I co-ordinate the Birmingham happenings. Drop me a line if you want to get involved.
