Altered Images is a project for film and music experimentation. We bring together artists from various disciplines to create original and unique pieces that will be shown at different events. We are focused in New Media Arts, Sound, Performance, Inclusivity, Feminism and Queer Activism.

Our showcase is open to artists all around the world whose works have an experimental and innovative character.
Its goal is to create forthcoming events of live music, projections and art installations where people can enjoy the show in a relaxed and friendly environment within the London artist scene (UK). We’re looking for brave and risky filmmakers, who enjoy exploring the sounds and the different touch other artists can provide to their images.
One of our key priorities is to look after the chosen videos that will be showcased as well as after the artists behind them. Not only by inviting them to attend the event, whenever possible, but also by providing them with a complete feedback.

Get your movie or video showcased at Altered Images and benefit from the diffusion of the event in different social media.
