Call for Workshop Participants: Embodied Documentary Filmmaking - June 2024

Dear all, due to requests, I wanted to pass on information for the second
edition of our *embodied documentary filmmaking *workshop "Body of the
Earth" with IMPRINT documentary collective, for those interested in
research on film, the body and/or environment.


*Body of the Earth: 2, 9, & 23 June, 19:00-21:00 BST (UK time), Online*
*(for women, trans, and nonbinary participants)*

*Embodied Documentary Filmmaking* is an evolving, creative process
developed as part of IMPRINT Documentary Collective's ongoing experimental
research exploring the convergence of the body politic, somatic practices
and experimental filmmaking in documentary.

"Body of the Earth" is a practical, online, 4 week filmmaking
workshop where participants will make their own short documentary on their
own (or another's) embodied experience of a topic of their choosing.
Previous films in this workshop have explored a variety of themes at the
intersection of the environment and dreams, movement, gender, disability,
race, illness, dance, age, sexuality, food, culture, and the
more-than-human. The workshop will create a space for collective
experimentation with filmmaking techniques that focus on embodiment and the
body, with a small group of participants from all over the world.
Participants will leave the workshop with their own 3 - 10 minute film, and
will be a member of the IMPRINT documentary collective.

Up to 12 spaces are available on a sliding scale basis at the links below:

*This workshop is suitable for participants of all filmmaking levels, from
absolute beginner to professional. Participants must have access to their
own camera (DSLR, analogue camera, smartphone, etc.). Filmmakers, artists,
researchers, academics, and students from any discipline or area of work
are welcome to join. The workshop is for women, trans, and nonbinary

IMPRINT Documentary Collective is an international feminist film collective
focusing on embodiment and the body in documentary film. Founded in 2021,
IMPRINT delivers workshops, productions, and screenings to collectively
experiment with the theme of embodiment as a process for making films. Our
collaborations both within the film industry and local communities have
allowed us to reach a wide audience on the potential of *embodied
documentary, *and our goal is to broaden the representation of marginalised
storytellers by using the documentary medium as an act of radical and
empathic resistance through the lens of the body politic.
