Cumbrian artist filmmaker Julia Parks will be showing how experimental 16 mm films are made. Film makers will create unique film loops by drawing, painting, scratching and hole punching directly onto the film surface. The young filmmakers will complete a looped unique film that can be projected on a 16mm projector.

The main project will run for 18 weekly sessions from Tues 26th Sept 5.30 until 7.30pm at Signal. The workshops will be run by Signal’s own filmmakers and a series of visiting artists and filmmakers.
