Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival

Provided by:

Event runs from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM


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 at the Chauvel Cinemas Paddington and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Liverpool. 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 the 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 you in new environments and providing a different experience of craft. Entry Cost All tickets $25
