Formed in 2015, AgX is an artist-run film lab and collective of Boston-area moving image artists housed in an 1800-square-foot facility, fully equipped with a darkroom, dry lab, and screening area/exhibition space. The collective seeks to create a more sustainable ecosystem for non-commercial filmmakers – particularly those working with photochemical film – through shared resources, equipment, knowledge, and camaraderie. AgX regularly hosts work-in-progress critiques and skill-building events for its members, in addition to public screenings and workshops that highlight the numerous unique creative possibilities that silver-based emulsions offer.
With a growing membership of over fifty artists, the films in this program represent only a small sampling of works created by AgX, and thus they do not encapsulate the breadth of interests and approaches of our ever-expanding group. They do, however, reflect a shared spirit of experimentation and openness to form. Many of these films were screened and further developed through our work-in-progress screenings, while some were directly processed and edited onsite at AgX.
