LATENT IMAGE: Harbour Collective Experimental Film Lab Screening
Time & Location
About the Event
Analogue film, once the staple of the film industry, moved into the domain of film artisans in the post digital world. Art filmmakers are drawn to its materiality and the ways in which the two key components of how it reveals images – light and chemistry – can be modified to produce unique outcomes that speak back to the active choices the artist made in its handling. Movements away from traditional film processing chemistries have been seen for some time now, most commonly with a coffee-based developing recipe in use for decades. More recently, plant-based processing practices have emerged, moving away from staple recipes to more personalized ones that are often a response to the physical sites where they were made.
This screening program accompanies the Harbour Collective Experimental Film Lab at the Filmpool, demonstrating the possibilities of hand-crafted analogue filmmaking approaches, including hand processing, hand colouring, the use of eco developers and other nature-based interventions. Works featured are all by small-region filmmakers working outside of the networks of the major cities, and also include works by the program leaders of the Experimental Film Lab. The 30-minute screening program will be accompanied by a discussion about the different approaches used by each of the filmmakers and the possibilities they present for new ideas in analogue filmmaking.
