A Pact with the Process: 20 Years of Film Farm

Saturday September 20, 7:30 PM
@ 401 Richmond Street West Courtyard
(Rain location: CineCycle, 129 Spadina Ave.)

Part of Fall 2014

Pleasure Dome is delighted to present a program of works from Philip Hoffman’s Independent Imaging Retreat, or “Film Farm,” in celebration of the process-based artisanal film workshop’s 20th anniversary. Since 1994, Film Farm has been re-imagining film production and pedagogy with a focus on process-based artistic practices, driven not by commerce but rather by exploration, materiality, conviviality, and mindfulness.

For 20 years the `Film Farm’, has brought together a small group of interested filmmakers – some novices and some highly experienced – for an intensive week of shooting, hand-processing, tinting/toning, watching and editing film — most of the action taking place in and around an old barn on the Normanby Township property, near Mount Forest Ontario.

The pastoral landscapes and structures of rural Ontario set the scene for these experiments, which embrace imperfection and grit in the pursuit of surprises both affective and aesthetic. In this programme of films and videos, we celebrate labour and craft, contingency and chance, and personal expression through the poetics of process.
