AnalogueZoneFinale

ANALOGUE ZONE is a long term project based on a celluloid film training program, involving more than 40 film makers, artists, and amateurs from Egypt, Germany, and Greece. It took place in Cairo and Berlin between 2012 -2016. The workshops resulted in the collective production of around 30 analogue films which both document and bear witness to the initial questionings and responses of a generation of artists to the transition taking place in the region, and particularly Cairo.

The ANALOGUE ZONE FINALE presents films, film performances and film installations, which were produced during the program. The event opens on Thursday, the 16th of June with an exhibition and a book- and DVD publication connected to the program. Two film screenings at the Arsenal will show Super 8 and 16mm works of the participants. Highlight of the event takes place on Saturday, the 18th of June with panel discussion followed by a garden dinner and an performance evening at LaborBerlin’s new location at Prinzenallee 58​. The program consisted of three intensive, mostly practical workshops.

The first workshop established the first independent film lab in Cairo at the alternative film centre CIMATHEQUE through comprising 8 and 16 mm shooting and editing facilities, a processing laboratory, archive library, and screening facilities. During the workshops in Cairo and Berlin practical and technical knowledge about analogue film was mediated methodically, so the Egyptian participants got professional transporters of this knowledge. During the last workshop transnational collaborations were realized.

ANALOGUE ZONE is based on an intensive exchange between the independent film associations LaborBerlin and Cimatheque (Cairo) in cooperation with LabA (Athens). The project​ is funded by the European Cultural Foundation and the Senat Berlin​.​
