Hello Bernard,

That term "film artist" is tricky - not sure if you mean
"avant-garde/experimental" filmmakers or that curious category of
"artists who also make films" (or "artist-filmmaker" - people who make
films and videos for galleries and market them as art objects ala
Rodney Graham, Shirin Neshat, etc.). I'd recommend the Lux site, which
is a terrific resource that includes writings by and about filmmakers
(and artist-filmmakers), and other very worthwhile materials like rare
images and video of films and film-related performances:

Staying in the British context, the Undercut Reader is also very good:

Both sites, by the way, address in some way or another the issue I
raised above, of the relationship between the film world and the art
world - what that means, what its consequences are, etc. These just
happen to be two things on my mind lately (British avant-garde film and
the relationship between film and gallery art), so my recommendations
here reflect those current preoccupations. Hope they're useful.
