LEARN TRADITIONAL FILM MAKING

MONO NO AWARE is proud to offer traditional film making workshops here in Brooklyn, NY. Workshops are limited to 10 persons or less, providing an intimate hands-on learning experience. Instructors are locally-based, practicing filmmakers and artists looking to share their years of knowledge and experience.  All related workshop materials; film stock, chemical processing, cameras, editing and projection equipment are included.  At the end of each workshop session we throw a FREE public screening open to you and your friends at Anthology Film Archives!  Each session, MONO NO AWARE partners with local and international film festivals to offer entry waivers to all our participants.  To assist you in entering your work, MONO NO AWARE will digitally scan and host your finished film on our Vimeo+ channel. Please read our list of workshop policies below before registering.  These workshops would not be possible without the support of NYSCA ; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. We are proud to have partnerships with KODAK, METROPOLIS POSTCINELAB, COLORLAB, and to work with THE GOWANUS DARKROOM.
