MFF heads north to the reef!
Our new short film festival all about craft and making, is being screened in Exmouth – thanks to Cultural Arts Centre there and their supporters.
This collection of films focuses on how we employ the dexterity of our hands to create functional objects, art and to tell the stories of our lives.
Showing in two parts at
The Ningaloo Centre, Exmouth
Part One: Saturday 19 February 2022
Part Two: Saturday 26 February 2022
The selection of films encompasses a broad range of craft, design and making disciplines presented in mini documentaries, story-led artist profiles to ingenious animations and music video.
Selected from near and far, the films spotlight the everyday habits and skills of ‘makers and smiths’, they reveal what drives enduring professional practice, and illustrate a diversity in film-making creativity as much as the traditional and contemporary craft approaches.
Disciplines and techniques include:
Basketry, Ceramic Art + Pottery, Costume Design + Making, Fibre Art, Glassmaking, Jewellery + Metalsmithing, Pearl Carving, Puppet Making, Screen + Block Printing, Sound Design + Making, Stop Motion Animation, Textiles, Weaving, and Zoetropes.
The 24 short films are shown in two sessions, choose to go to one or both. Each session is approximately 1 hour 20 minutes long.
The Exmouth screening is thanks to the support of the Exmouth Cultural Arts Centre, who are supported by Woodside and Mitsui E&P.
The Makers’ Film Festival 2021 was developed as part of ‘IOTA21: Indian Ocean Craft Triennial’, supported by Lotterywest.
