Process Cinema: Film Farm Workshop 2020
Open Call for Applications
Process Cinema: Film Farm in Oberhausen 13-16 May
A hands-on workshop for filmmakers who work or want to work with 16mm film. The Film Farm (Mount Forest, Ontario, Canada) will be in Oberhausen with a three-day intensive workshop covering artistic and technical aspects of working with 16mm - from practical basics to the creative traditions of the material.
The workshop is primarily intended for filmmakers who have had some experience experimenting with the form and content of 16mm film, as well those who have had similar experiences with other art forms and would like to work with film. There will be 12 participants.
Participants will learn to shoot and hand-process 16mm black and white film (both conventional and with flower and plant materials – “green” processing). Other techniques such as tinting and toning celluloid will also be covered. Editing on celluloid will be minimal. Projects will develop over the workshop using the idea of Process Cinema (collect : reflect : revise) as a guide in this process-driven workshop.
The results of this workshop will be presented during the Festival.
The Film farm Workshop will be lead by Philip Hoffman, Scott Miller Berry, Terra Jean Long, Rob Butterworth, Deirdre Logue, Film Farm (Canada).
Workshop Fees: The workshop fee of Euro 150 (excl. transaction fees) covers all workshop sessions plus a festival pass and catalogue, several events and talks during the Festival, as well as refreshments and lunch for the workshop period. Participants will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation (rooms at affordable rates can be provided).
Deadline for applications: 1 March 2020 (The participants will be announced on 15 March.)
