Film Projection Charter

filmprojection21.org is an initiative conceived around the concrete commitment represented by the Charter of Cinematographic Projection in the 21st Century, uniting those who care about photochemical film projection.

Filmmakers, artists, producers, archivists, distributors, programmers or members of the audience, whether involved in the festival network, the archival world, contemporary art, independent venues, or all kinds of film-making, from the movie industry to the underground, we assert the importance of building a future for photochemical film projection and intend to share resources toward that goal.

Artist-Run Film Labs

http://www.filmlabs.org

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.
