Artist-run film labs implement an original way of using production tools, through their collective organizations, for filmmakers and artists currently working with celluloid film.

They act as an experimental ground for cinema (beyond any genre) at a time when the industry is gradually getting rid of film and, with that, the means to process and print.

This website gives an overview of the organizations that have emerged in Europe, America and Asia.  It serves as a portal for sharing information about labs and is also a place for debating aesthetic, political and technical questions raised by this on-going endeavor.
