Analog Film Workshop

Cinema, whether analog or digital, historical or brand new, is undeniably part of social reality. It is as political, as conservative, as progressive as those who shape the films, the venues, and ultimately the film industry itself. To approach cinema critically today, we therefore need to look at its films and images that already exist. This can mean altering the images, placing them in a new context or even sabotaging them.

In the Bildsabotage workshop, we therefore invite you to join us in questioning internationally popular images of US cinema in a hands-on way. We want to take a closer look at blockbuster films of the past decades by looking at their trailers on analogue film reels, by playing with them, editing them, and changing their form. With scratching tools, paint, and adhesive tape we want to probe and poke, to scrutinize and dissect. Using this found film material, completely new short films will ultimately be created. No previous knowledge of analog film is required to participate in the workshop. (DV + SSS)
