Stop Play Record was a three-year programme (2015-18) for young people aged between 16 - 24 years, interested in making experimental short films. Selected from an annual open call, filmmakers worked with a range of professionals working with moving image to conceive and produce short films between 90 seconds and 3 minutes long.

Between 2015 - 2018, Chisenhale Gallery commissioned new short films with filmmakers Ayo Akingbade and William Glass (2015 -16), Korallia Stergides and Raheela Suleman (2016 -17), Anita Safowaa and Wajahat Hussain (2017 -18).

Stop Play Record formed part of a joint initiative between Arts Council England and Channel 4, which saw the Institute of Contemporary Arts lead a London Network in partnership with Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Chisenhale Gallery, DAZED, Kingston University and SPACE.
