Details:
Australian Design Centre is presenting Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival in the lead up to Sydney Craft Week. Fresh from the UK to Sydney for two screenings on Thursday 5 September 2019 at the Chauvel Cinemas Paddington and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Liverpool on Saturday 21 September 2019.

Real to Reel is a short film festival that celebrates craft and making in all its facets: traditional, contemporary, subversive and diverse. Featuring an eclectic programme of shorts exploring our relationship with materials and making, the films have been selected from around the globe. Discover documentaries, maker profiles, music videos and hand-crafted animations that celebrate craft in all its facets.

Film offers makers unique possibilities of expression. It can capture transformations; material, time-based and otherwise, it can present singular and multiple narratives, it can enable the representation of the temporal and performative, and it can take a micro or macro view. In Real to Reel the films are grouped into three thematic sections – material narratives, performative making and animated craft – each immersing us in new environments and providing a different experience of craft.

Themes are at times playful or meditative, some highlight social impact projects. The 28 films selected feature contemporary weaving, woodwork, ceramics, glassblowing and metalsmithing, offering a unique opportunity to witness craft in action and the narratives, passion and skill inherent in the creation of works. The program also unites some unusual and perhaps unexpected tales of making – from miniatures, to replica birds’ eggs, to a human powered bakery – along with animations that bring to life fibre, wool, clay and found objects.
Location:
Chauvel Cinema, 249 Oxford St (Cnr Oxford st & Oatley Rd), Paddington, NSW
