Two-part workshop: 16mm Film: Listen and Witness (3 hours each)       **Registration Required                            with Lindsay McIntyre

In this two-part workshop, participants will receive all the tools, resources, and instruction necessary to shoot, develop, and screen their own 16mm film. 

LISTEN: In the first session, participants will get a hands-on experience with celluloid film, learning how to use a Bolex (the independent filmmaker's box of tricks) and a light metre while shooting their own 3 minutes B+W film. 

WITNESS: In the second session, taking place on the last day of the conference, each participant will be guided step-by-step through the full black and white film development process in negative and reversal. Participants will then hand-process their own film as a reversal image, learning some experimental darkroom tricks along the way including rayograms, monoflex and some chemical manipulations.  Films will be dried, spliced together and projected for an audience of conference participants.
