ACTION: CINEMA AS CONNECTION PRESENTS FILMMAKING AS RESISTANCE / STORYTELL AS SURVIVAL: A WORKSHOP WITH ALIMA LEE
Saturday, October 13 and Sunday October 14; 12 – 4 PM EACH DAY
This free workshop is part of ACTION! Cinema as Connection, a series presenting documentary films and workshops by female filmmakers of color. ACTION! is made possible with the support of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Filmmaking As Resistance / Storytelling As Survival
In an effort to achieve solidarity, we most often forget to hear each other out, especially those not usually asked to speak; to make the effort to understand their perspective through an unbiased lens. We tell our stories for survival; for the chance for you to better understand our circumstances and allow for a shift in consciousness. However, considering such circumstances, black femmes & QTPOC (Queer & Trans People of Color) are more often than not cut off to vital resources crucial to creating films. With limited resources, how can we create the films we want to make? How can we support each other and raise up together?
In this workshop we will be investigating the simple phrase “less is more”. We will go over low cost ways of creating beautiful imagery, sourcing tools with little to no budget and generally being creative with what you have. We’ll also cover on set problem solving, alternative filming methods, and various editing techniques. This workshop is open to filmmakers of all levels who are interested in radical & experimental filmmaking.
Space is limited with priority to women of color, LGBTQ populations, and low-income individuals ages 19-35. Call or email EPFC for more details.
This event is fully booked.
