DOCMA Workshop + Screening

Workshop: Wed 23 October, 7pm, CCA Clubroom – ticketed
Please note the originally advertised screening has been cancelled. The DOCMA films will now be shown before Ai Weiwei’s The Rest, Sunday 27/10 from 12.45pm

A DOCMA is a 5-minute documentary film made by 5 filmmakers in 5 different documentary styles. It’s a collaborative exercise designed to allow us to make documentaries together and get our creative juices flowing.

The workshop will take place on Wednesday 23 October at 7pm in CCA Clubroom. Teams will be formed, roles allocated and rules explained. You’ll have two days to complete your own bit of documentary magic to be screened to fellow participants and friends on the final day of Document. Completed films will be added to the ever-growing online DOCMA archive. Whether you’re a seasoned filmmaker or just curious to try it out, all you need to participate is access to something to shoot and edit on, no matter how basic. A smartphone will do just fine.

The results will screen on Sunday 27 October at 12.45pm before Ai Weiwei’s The Rest.

Please note: participation in the workshop is ticketed. Audiences curious to see the results can come along to the Sunday screening for free.

SUPERLUX Seminar with Kate Parker

Booking via Eventbrite
Free for SUPERLUX Members

Join Kate Parker who will present an overview of her work as part of City Projects, a visual arts organisation that commissions and produces Artists’ Moving Image projects with artists which respond critically to their social and political context.

Recent projects include Solidarity by Lucy Parker, a film about blacklisting in the construction industry, that is being screened in Glasgow on Friday 25 October as part of Document. Kate will talk in detail about the development, production and distribution plans of Solidarity (2019).

Earlier this year City Projects published The Politics of Production, a report written by artist Dan Ward which critically examines the current conditions for production of Artists’ Moving Image. Kate will talk about her motivations for publishing it alongside an accompanying text that she wrote in 2016, The Conditions for Artists; Moving Image Production in London Today.

Participants are encouraged to read both texts in advance of the seminar.

City Projects was formed in 2003 and is run by its voluntary management committee  Fani Arampatzidou (chair), Kate Parker (secretary), Louise Shelley (treasurer) Rabz Lansiquot and Taylor Le Melle.
