Decolonising Filmic Experience: Workshop 1

8 May '24 at 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Decolonising Filmic Experience is an attempt to bring together interested parties around the topic of decolonisation, as it pertains to accessing film viewing, making, exhibition, distribution and education. Each workshop intends to inquire: to what extent does decolonisation as a discourse penetrate the social worlds in which film circulates? How is filmic experience being utilised or reconfigured to frame such encounters? And, what is the relationship between decolonising discourses and anti-colonial movements, internationally?

This first workshop is concerned with decolonisation in film exhibition and distribution and will feature a keynote presentation by T A P E Collective, a film programming, distribution and education group, doing vital work in and around this area. T A P E was founded in 2015 by Angela Moneke and Isra Al Kassi as a response to the under-representation of minority groups on screen and in the film industries.
