The Art Of Documentary

Recommended for AS/A2 and foundation students of Art & Design, Media and

Film Studies.

Capacity: 158 places

This cinema-based workshop will look at the diverse ways in which contemporary artists use film and video to explore notions of documentary, and how their work spans gallery-based exhibition, cinema and broadcast screenings. Esther Johnson examines the opportunities and difficulties facing artist filmmakers working in these areas, in an age which has witnessed increased access to filmmaking equipment and alternative channels of distribution.

There will be a varied screening programme of short creative artist documentaries as part of this session.

Led by Esther Johnson, artist and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University.

PLEASE NOTE: This event takes place on the morning of Tues 23 September ONLY. It is not an 8 week course as advertised in the Projector brochure.
