LATEST FILM POSTED

Artist-run film labs represent a unique way for filmmakers and artists working with celluloid film to have access to the tools of film production in a collectively organized context.

At a time when the industry is gradually getting rid of both film and the means to process and print, these labs act as a breeding ground for filmic experimentation beyond any single genre.

This website gives an overview of the  organizations that have emerged throughout the world.  It is at once a portal for sharing information about labs and a place for debating the aesthetic, political and technical questions raised by this ongoing endeavor.

Thanks to a section that is regularly updated with content added directly by filmmakers, you’ll find descriptions of hundreds of film works created in these labs.

Filmmakers! If you have used one these labs to make a film, an installation or a performance, please add your work using this form so that it appears on the website. It will also automatically be posted on the agenda@filmlabs.org mailing-list and our facebook page.

Film programmers! Please check this website regularly to keep up with what’s going on in the labs and subscribe to the agenda@filmlabs.org mailing-list or follow our facebook page. You can also request a programmer login to be able to see the passwords for screener links posted by filmmakers.

On this site, you’ll also find historical overviews of artist-run film labs, texts about film practice, a large technical section, documentation of artist-labs’ meetings, as well as a subscription page for our two mailing-lists, forum  and agenda.
