Have you ever wondered what making your own home movie would be like? In this hands-on filmmaking workshop hosted in partnership with the8fest and facilitated by filmmaker Marnie Parrell, participants will learn how to shoot on and develop Super 8 film.
Super 8 film—a motion picture film format that was first released in 1965 by Eastman Kodak, and is considered the classic “home movie” video format.
Participants must be 16 years old or over. We encourage candidates from all walks of life to apply, however, Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) residents will be prioritized in the selection process. No previous experience necessary.

She attempts to reframe objects, scenes and stories in such a way as to make the familiar, or some aspect of it, seem new or strange thus creating the potential for reinterpretation. Currently working in new media, she is exploring the potential of fiducials and augmented reality, as well as interactive filmmaking.
