Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival
Central Craft, Maker&Smith and UK Crafts Council
6.30pm Friday 29th November at Alice Springs Cinema
A unique film festival originating in the UK dedicated to craft and the moving image, giving a platform to a wealth of films that explore themes of making, makers, materials and process.
The international selection of short films, produced by the UK’s Crafts Council and Crafts magazine, is an eclectic program that explores our relationship with materials and making, and celebrates craft in all its facets.
THE 33 SHORT FILMS ARE DIVIDED ACROSS TWO SESSIONS, THAT COVER AN INCREDIBLE DIVERSITY OF STYLES, PEOPLE AND APPROACHES.
Part one: 16 films; approx. 70 mins
Part two: 17 films; approx. 65 mins
There’s BAFTA-winning, hand-crafted animation and music videos as well as glimpses behind the scenes in makers’ studios.
Specialisms include weaving, glass-making, mosaic, ceramics, metalwork, costume and even bread making.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A ‘MAKER’ TO ENJOY THESE FILMS.
Themes are at times playful or meditative, some highlight social impact projects, there’s comedy and song, even dance…
Join us for a night of film and the celebration of craft.
