LIFE is a dream for an independent group of digital artists as they showcase their new film, Dreamsville, at Modern Art Oxford.

The Shadowlight Artists, a group of digital artists with learning disabilities, had their latest in a long line of successful projects showcased at the gallery in Pembroke Street.

The experimental film was screened on Friday to a packed audience.

The film sees the artists star and direct in a world they have created using different materials and objects.

Richard Duriez, project manager at Film Oxford, said that the project had taken the artists just four days to complete.

He said: “It is an experimental piece, it is like the land of the giants.

“They created all the materials, they did all the filming and all the editing. They are truly a remarkable group of artists.”

This is not the group’s first taste of success as they have previously exhibited work at the National Film Theatre and the Southbank Centre in London.

They were also awarded another grant by the Arts Council of England in May for a project called Creative Bridges.

Individual artists have also enjoyed their fair share of success with Richard Hunt getting a painting exhibited at Compton Verney gallery in Warwickshire.

Mr Hunt’s work was chosen out of 300 entries as part of the Outside-In project.

Danny Smith had his film, A Time for a Change, chosen for the Sprout Film festival in New York, which features the cream of the world’s crop of films made by filmmakers with learning disabilities.
