At its core, the retreat offers individuals a space to create art. It takes you away from your daily routine and invites you on a self-drive creative expedition, providing tools, time and freedom to explore your own practice in a variety of natural settings. The Film Retreat offers the right blend of personal time, creative feedback from other artists, and meal-time camaraderie, all revolving around experimentation and art-making with 16mm film.
Film Retreat is a joyous celebration of hand processing. I find it fascinating that you can magically summon a moving image onto celluloid with your hands.
