LABeirut Film Workshop


Lebanese filmmaker Siska and LaborBerlin members Michel Balagué and Philip Widmann will offer an intensive workshop on analog film practice at the Zico House from January 6th to 12th, 2012.

During the seven days of LABeirut, twelve participants will learn to operate Super 8 and 16mm film cameras, to expose different film stocks as well as to hand-process, edit and finally project their own films.

Prospective participants need no previous knowledge of working with analog film, although experience in camera-based visual practices – photography, video and film – will be an asset.

The first introductory meeting on January 6 will be followed by a public screening of works by various members of LaborBerlin e.V. at Zico House. On January 12 the films produced by the participants of LABeirut will be shown at Metropolis Cinema.
