Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival | DESIGN Canberra 2020

DESIGN Canberra is presenting Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival during the 2020 festival.

Real to Reel is a short film festival that celebrates craft and making in all its facets: traditional, contemporary, subversive and diverse. Featuring an eclectic programme of shorts exploring our relationship with materials and making, the films have been selected from around the globe. Discover documentaries, maker profiles, music videos and hand-crafted animations that celebrate craft in all its facets.

Themes are at times playful or meditative, some highlight social impact projects. The 28 films selected feature contemporary weaving, woodwork, ceramics, glassblowing and metalsmithing, offering a unique opportunity to witness craft in action and the narratives, passion and skill inherent in the creation of works. The program also unites some unusual and perhaps unexpected tales of making—from miniatures, to replica birds’ eggs, to a human powered bakery—along with animations that bring to life fibre, wool, clay and found objects.

Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival is produced by the Crafts Council UK and Crafts magazine. It’s tour to Australia is courtesy of Maker&Smith.

The Real to Reel Film Festival is presented over 2 sessions, 4:30 to 5:45pm and 6:15 to 7:30pm, films for each session are listed below. Each session Tickets for each session are sold separately.
