OCT 1, 2016 1pm - 4pm, with screening from 8pm-10pm Falaise Fieldhouse | 3434 Falaise Avenue FREE | No registration required
Iris Film Collective presents a drawing-on-film workshop! Participants will handle actual 16mm film to draw, paint, scratch and mark it, creating a series of images and abstract shapes that will come to life as we run them through the projector. This is a free all-ages workshop, and anyone can participate. Later in the evening we will present an installation of the loops created as well as some we have made ourselves, all rendered without a camera and made by physically marking the actual film: inks, paints, stamps, letraset, markers and more! Come participate to create and then see the screens light up with tactile and fleeting abstractions, patterns, and tiny drawings in motion made large through the magic of film projection. Workshop indoors at our studio and screening outdoors, all at Falaise Park! Iris Film Collective will be presenting further free workshops later in October. Check our website for more details: www.irisfilmcollective.com
Participants of all ages and experience are welcome.
Iris Film Collective is a Vancouver-based group of independent artists creating, exhibiting and touring film-based works—single channel, expanded, sculptural, installation—with the goal of increasing the visibility and accessibility of experimental media art. Above all, our interest in cine-film—actual celluloid—at a time when this medium is shifting to a post-industry model, is key to all our pursuits.
Falaise Fieldhouse is the home of the Iris Film Collective’s Studio. Meeting space and Darkroom, it also serves as a space for artist talks, workshops, intimate screenings as well as outdoor events.
