FRAMES of REPRESENTATION (FoR) is a laboratory conceived to engage with new visions of documentary cinema through supporting exhibition, production and distribution of innovative and politically aware cinematic languages.


Nico Marzano (Founder/Artistic Director) curates the Film Programme at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London (ICA) bringing a unique programme of independent and socially relevant films to UK audiences. As well as hosting industry debates, masterclasses and Q&As with contemporary international artists and filmmakers, Nico also served on juries for Venice Film Festival and London Film Festival amongst others. Nico has been a guest lecturer at Birkbeck University of London, Falmouth University, Kingston University and delivered papers and keynote speeches for various international agencies. Nico contributes to various academic film journals with film reviews and film theory essays.

Each year the festival is supported by guest speakers, Q&A hosts, filmmakers and marketing and production assistants. We believe in paying for work - and thus do not offer any voluntary positions.

FRAMES of REPRESENTATION was founded by Nico Marzano and Luke W. Moody in 2015.
