EXPANDING CINEMA is an extended workshop series with film artist Alex MacKenzie exploring performance-based film practice. Taking a hands-on approach to the materiality of cinema, these workshops will demystify and dismantle the filmic process with a focus on expanded cinematic forms. From projector modification to film manipulation, MacKenzie will be leading each session customized to participant interests and shaped by their input. Over the course of several months, this series offers the potential to produce singular and collaborative works or installations to be presented in the new year. This is a hands-on conversation where the practical and theoretical are blended at the discretion of participants. Come with ideas, or come to be inspired. All skill levels welcome.

Workshops are every six to eight weeks, Monday and Tuesday nights from 7-10 pm.

2012: October 29/30, December 10/11.  2013: January 28/29, March 18/19.
