Film Friends: Series Continues with Esther Urlus



Film Friends is a new monthly series that brings established and emerging filmmakers together online for informal discussions on everything analog cinema. Season 2’s theme is Simple Machines. Zoom in on February 12 at 10 AM as our series continues in conversation about turning flatbed editors into contact printers and all kinds of other amazing things with Esther Urlus of Filmwerkplaats, Rotterdam. Free event! All welcome!

Support for Film Friends provided by The Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.

Esther Urlus is a Rotterdam-based artist working with motion picture film formats Super8, 16mm and 35mm. Resulting in films, performances and installations, her works always arise from DIY methods. Kneading the material, by trial, error and (re) inventing, she creates new work. Urlus’ work has been exhibited and screened at film festivals worldwide, among other 25FPS festival Zagreb, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Oberhausen Short Film Festival, Sonic Acts, and the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Urlus is the founder of WORM Filmwerkplaats, Rotterdam, an artist-run workspace dedicated to motion picture film as an artistic, expressive medium. More and more it’s the artist-run film lab that represents the leading standard in contemporary analogue filmmaking. These labs have acquired professional, but commercially discarded equipment from all over the world. Now that artists have access to these tools, combined with the open culture-based knowledge sharing, they can move forward and innovate independently from the industry.
