The more we are dedicated to preserving, rediscovering, and revitalizing archival films, the more we have to make sure that there is enough competence in dealing with analog film material in the future.
For this reason we are offering a six-day analog workshop for the first time. Arsenal members and partners will accompany the participants through the entire process: from producing a 16mm film, to digitizing it, then on to projecting it in the cinema, with added insights into archiving and caring for prints. The last day will involve a tour of the archive.
The workshop will delve into the various working areas, covering the basics with equal parts theory and practice. Starting in 2019 the Arsenal will be offering extended workshops in the specific areas. The participation fee is 350 Euro, reduced 300 Euro. This includes one role of 16mm material to create a film, and cameras will be available for use. No previous knowledge necessary.
Full programme and registration at arsenal website.
The number of participants is limited (8 persons).
Registration deadline is July 28, 2017
