The Guerrilla Film Lab is an eight week immersion into handcrafted, DIY filmmaking. Make your own film experiment in just eight weeks! Explore the possibilities of what you can create with a do-it-yourself approach and a sense of adventure. With the help of the instructors, participants will shoot 16mm black and white film, hand process and optically manipulate it, screen it and discuss what they’ve created. Expect an intensive and immersive filmmaking experience.
