WET is a Rotterdam-based production and distribution cooperative for film, video and artists’ moving image founded by Anna Maria Łuczak, Erika Roux, Marta Hryniuk, Nick Thomas and Sophie Bates. Working within a spectrum of contemporary moving image practices WET pursues a mode of production based on collaboration and mutual support. WET assists in the production of works through the exchange of labour, equipment and expertise.

WET is also a platform for distribution, curating and programming, with a focus on works which question existing film orthodoxies, and which propose alternative (social, historical, political and aesthetic) perspectives on the medium. Wet is currently running Lounge a monthly expanded screening at Tent in Rotterdam.

This event is made possible by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and De Montfort University.
