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.

EMBODIED DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING 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.

RESERVE A SPACE Up to 12 spaces are available on a sliding scale basis at the links below: Body of the Earth - Eventbrite

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 participants.

ABOUT IMPRINT 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.
