An impressive program of 24 short films to pump your beating heart for craft.
A new short film festival all about craft and making, presented by Maker&Smith.
This new 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.
Sunday 23 May 2021, 3.30-6.30pm
Midland Junction Arts Centre
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.
Screened in two sessions with an interval, the whole program lasts three hours.
Tickets include interval refreshments.
