The workshop: How do you make a film without a camera? In this workshop we will explore the materiality of 16mm film; marking, scratching, drawing and manipulating celluloid in various ways before immediately running the film through a projector and viewing the colourful abstract animation and experimental results at the end of the session. Accessible to all ages.
Run in collaboration with Cine-Sister
