About the directors

Art Party is the latest in a series of collaborations between artist Bob and Roberta Smith and filmmaker Tim Newton. Both live in Leytonstone in East London, a community that was the subject of their first film in 2011.

Bob and Roberta Smith is the founder of the Art Party movement that seeks to better advocate the arts to Government. He is best known for his painting Make Art Not War in the Tate collection and was recently made a Royal Academician.

Tim Newton has worked as an actor, writer and director in theatre, film and television for over 20 years, regularly performing in productions by maverick theatre director Ken Campbell. Tim's recent short film Trimming Pablo (2011) is a fictionalised account of Picasso’s visit to the 1950 Sheffield Peace Congress in which Bob also appears. In 2012 Tim and Bob's joint film Who is Community? was commissioned as part of Art on the Underground's Central Line series. The film featured Julia Rayner who now plays civil servant Hetty Nettleship alongside John Voce (as Michael Grove MP) in Tim and Bob's first feature length collaboration.
