FREE but registration required via

Please bring: clothes that can be stained (long sleeves, long pants, closed-toe shoes), dish gloves, and a lunch for each day

Presented in partnership by VIVO Media Arts Centre and Capture Photography Festival.

Join artist Nisha Platzer for this weekend workshop where participants will learn a brief history of Super 8 film, from its release in 1965 by Eastman Kodak to its use by contemporary artists and filmmakers of today. Then everyone will shoot their very own Super 8 films, process the film by hand, edit the film manually, and have the final works shown in a screening with live music.

Day 1: We’ll learn about the format of Super 8 and see some examples before going out and shooting our own films.

Day 2: We’ll process the films in photochemistry and splice them together before the screening!

This workshop is generously supported by an ArtStarts Creative Spark Grant.
