Jane Glennie – artist, filmmaker and typographic designer.
Jane Glennie's films have screened at festivals across the world. They have won awards and distinctions, including at the International Festival Dona i Cinema (Spain), Women Over 50 Film Festival (UK), Oxford Brookes Poetry Film Competition (UK), and Weimar Poetry Film Competition (Germany). They have been featured by Faber & Faber, www.shondaland.com and at the Southbank Centre. In 2022, she created a film with writer Rosie Garland: Because Goddess Is Never Enough. This project was awarded funding from Arts Council England, and became the pivot of a Jane's solo exhibition, Fear & Yearning (and the sliver in between) at CRASSH/University of Cambridge in 2023.
She has presented her work at MIX: Digital Storytelling at the British Library, at the Royal Anthropological Film Conference, and at Radical Repetition: London Conference in Critical Thought.
She is founder of Peculiarity Press and publisher of ‘A New Dictionary of Art’ and 'Typos: the story of a Reluctant Artwork'. Previous projects include a commission (with Robert Good) to create the ‘Word Bank of Lost Dialects’ exhibition for The Word National Centre for the Written Word in South Shields; an installation at South Hill Park Arts Centre with over 2,000 recorded visitor interactions; and the Arts Council England funded event Engage with Art.
