HOME Artist Film Lab: Worldbuilding

Are you an artist working with film, video or moving image in the North of England? Join the second edition of the HOME Artist Film Lab.

The HOME Artist Film Lab is a space for artist filmmakers to explore, learn and share together. It will take place Thu 1 – Fri 2 Dec 2022.

The lab will bring together a cohort of 10 artist filmmakers for a series of artist-led workshops, talks, discussions, and screenings, inspired by ideas of speculative fiction and worldbuilding – how do we build worlds with moving image and sound? how can these worlds inspire new ways of thinking about our own worlds?

The lab is a space of collective exploration. We hope that you will come away from the lab with new skills, tools, and ideas for your own practice, and most of all, that you will make connections with other artist filmmakers in the region.

I don’t think I have ever learned so much in a weekend or felt so welcome, it was very special.

I found the lab very informative and welcoming – I felt at ease and comfortable very fast and the facilitators and participants created a safe space to discuss and explore.

I loved meeting so many lovely filmmakers and learning about each other’s practice, sharing ideas and methods. Everyone was so warm and helpful.
