Frieze Film is a series of new film commissions by leading contemporary artists, premiered annually at Frieze London.

Highly influential American artist Alex Bag subverts the vocabularies of advertising, music videos and reality TV to critique today’s neo-liberal structures

Peopled with hybrid and sexually charged beings, the meditative video works of the Icelandic artist are fed by Nordic sagas and irrational drives

Mixing pop culture with elements of Surrealism, the French artist's theatrical films take history or myth as their points of departure to create a ‘patchwork narration’

Using a drone to film her own body from a ‘hornet perspective’, the German artist questions the fe/male gaze, and how technology interferes with the physical self.
