De Filmwerkplaats (Netherlands)
Based in Rotterdam. Low budget. Two young operators with a lot of knowledge about the chemical, optical and mechanical aspects of (16 mm, super8) film invite students, filmmakers and other artists to benefit from their knowledge and accomodation. During the year several workshops are organised.
On top of this they organise several filmscreenings (locally, Rotterdam) related with the workshops.
A very promising operation!.
Shortly "De Filmwerkplaats" has fused with "WORM" and is operating now in the fantastic VOC-building, Achterhaven, Rotterdam
A very special music- and film-podium in Rotterdam, and it smells like Rotterdam!
"WORM is an organisation that focuses on presenting and producing experimental sound and image, without limitations. WORM organizes film evenings, concerts, clubnights and improvisation nights and initiates productions via her filmlaboratory, radio transmissions and other projects".
FILMBANK started in 2003. This new initiative is successfull in bringing out new as well as old Dutch experimental films.
SENSES OF CINEMA (Australia)
"An online journal devoted to the serious and eclectic discussion of cinema. We believe cinema is an art that can take many forms, from the industrially-produced blockbuster to the hand-crafted experimental work; we also aim to encourage awareness of the histories of such diverse forms. As an Australian-based journal, we have a special commitment to the regular, wide-ranging analysis and critique of Australian cinema, past and present."
