Ed Webb-Ingall is a writer and filmmaker.

I am a PhD candidate at Royal Holloway University, where I am carrying out the first in-depth study of the history and practice of community video in the UK. I currently run the public programme for the London Community Video Archive, at Goldsmiths College, University of London. My research and film practice have resulted in opportunities to present, exhibit and publish my work nationally and internationally. In 2012, I spent a year working on Move:Together a film and dance project at South London Gallery. In 2013, at the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival I presented the video project ReFramed Youth, this same year, I co-edited Derek Jarman’s Sketchbooks (Thames & Hudson). In 2014, on a British Council Residency in LA, I made a new video project with Echo Park Film Centre. In 2015, I was LUX writer in residence and exhibited the People Make Videos project at The Showroom Gallery. In 2016, I co-curated the Artist Moving Image Festival, Tramway, Glasgow, published an article for the Liverpool Biennial journal and began a new commission for Studio Voltaire, London. In 2017, I published an article on early video art in the UK for MIRAJ and a chapter on 1970s Community Video in Other Cinemas: Politics, Culture and Experimental Film in the 1970s (IB Tauris), edited by Laura Mulvey and Sue Clayton. I also presented iterations of my video project about Section 28 at Ryerson, Toronto and Common Guild, Glasgow and was commissioned to make a film with Scottish island communities, due to tour 10 Scottish venues, including DCA, Dundee, throughout 2018/19. In 2018, I have co-programmed a series of screenings at the ICA pairing videos by contemporary artists with archival films, I also have an exhibition at Focal Point Gallery. In autumn 2018, I will return to South London Gallery to carry out a new commission called The Archive is Political.
