On the Move is a touring programme of experimental film from the Scottish Borders-based
Moving Image Makers Collective.


As the first self-curated programme of films by MIMC, On the Move speaks to the notions of
intervening – with assistance from the moving image – upon one’s immediate environment.
By turns tentative and assertive, these works find rhythm, music and movement in acquired
objects, found phenomena and even silence; each, in its own way, argues the case for
environment as a conditioning device: a way by which one begins to think about negotiating
the world, and the basis for any aesthetic response to it.

On the Move saw its world premiere in May 2019 at the ninth edition of Alchemy Film and
Moving Image Festival. The Moving Image Makers Collective emerged from the Scottish
Borders Community Filmmaking Initiative, a series of workshops run by Alchemy Film & Arts
in 2014.


MIMC members come from a diverse range of backgrounds and include authors, poets,
photographers, filmmakers, playwrights, painters and mixed media artists. They meet
monthly to present new work for peer feedback, an ongoing and collective process of
exploration of the moving image which has led to this new programme. On the Move saw its
world premiere in May 2019 at the ninth edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image
Festival.
