Drop-in Tactile Filmmaking Workshops

Drop-in Tactile Filmmaking Workshops

Celebrate 100 years of 16mm film and join us at the Academy Museum for a drop-in Tactile Filmmaking Workshop in the Shirley Temple Education Studio. All ages welcome!

The Tactile Filmmaking workshops are interactive and accessible workshops to learn about direct-on-film animation techniques. Participants will collaborate on creating vibrant moving- image collages on 16mm film using simple materials like markers, tape, pushpins, and ink. At the end of the workshop, the individual strips of film will be spliced together and screened through a 16mm film projector, bringing together a community-created and truly collaborative film. Like the beautiful network of community members throughout our city, these workshops are a reminder that each individual film strip is unique, but when combined shows the power and beauty of collective action.   

 Additional family friendly activities include keychain making with celluloid film strips! 

11am–2pm | Workshop in the Shirley Temple Education Studio   
3pm | Screening in the Lower Level lobby   

All workshops are free with museum admission and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Museum admission is free for youth ages 17 and under.
