Join us for a 16mm Film Screening on Friday 15 September 2023.  Part of Heritage Open Days 2023.



To mark the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the 16mm motion picture film format, and to highlight its cultural impact and influence on both experimental artists and amateur filmmaking, EAFA will screen films from its collections including from those of the Institute of Amateur Cinematographers (IAC) and showcase those filmmakers that choose to express their individual voice using the 16mm film medium and technology.

This event will feature both digital screenings and projection from film.

The films will be introduced by Dr Nick Warr, EAFA’s Academic Director.
