Huw Wahl uses film, video and photography to make work.

He received a postgraduate bursary from the Royal Photographic Society in 2011 to produce the audio-visual project Negotiating Representation in 'Israel and Palestine', which uses photography and sound to look at how the occupation is perceived by photographers living in the region. In 2014 with this background in photography as well as the encouragement from being part of the media collective Castles Built in Sand, he made his first film - and his first feature film - 'To Hell with Culture', which is about the poet, writer and committed anarchist Sir Herbert Read who died in 1968. It uses Read's poetry to explore theories of art, politics and philosophy. In 2016 he produced his second feature film 'Action Space', which traverses the family history of the eponymous performance and inflatable group set up by Wahl's father in 1968. As part of the film a new giant inflatable was designed and built at Ambika P3 gallery by a group of volunteers and old Action Space members, providing a performance and event space to be used within the making and screening of the film, featuring live events at the Chelsea School of Art, Ambika P3 Gallery, Blackheath Halls and the Flatpack Film Festival where three days of events were held during the 2016 festival. In 2016 he also produced his first short film - on 16mm - titled 'Everything Lives: looking at the artist as a father', an intimate portrait of his father's life in the Cornish town of St, Ives as he turns ninety.

His work has been screened internationally and won awards at film festivals such as FILAF in Perpignan, DOKU.ARTS in Berlin, Flatpack in Birmingham and Leeds International Film Festival. It has been shown in art galleries, social centres and museums, with universities such as Manchester School of Art and the University of Huddersfield holding conferences and symposiums based on the films 'To Hell with Culture' and 'Action Space'. His films have been written about in magazines like Sight and Sound and The Wire, and he has written about his own work in academic journals such as Visual Studies and given papers on it at academic conferences like CAPPE in Brighton. He has previously received funding from The Henry Moore Foundation, Arts Council England, Michael Davies Charitable Settlement and the Royal Photographic Society.
