Title: Films from the Edge – Experimental Film Course
Description: Join filmmaker Maria Gabriella Ruban for a six week exploration of experimental short films, both classic and contemporary. As well as discussing the medium and watching many films, there will be an opportunity to make short films for public screening.
Start Time: 18:00

Over six weeks, the group will look at classic and contemporary short and experimental films, discuss film theory and then later form crews within the group to make their own series of short films, with an option to showcase their film at a public screening in February.
The course will end in March with an evening film festival, with an audience of special guests.
