About the event
This new collection of films focuses on how we employ the dexterity of our hands to create functional objects, art and to tell the stories of our lives. It encompasses a broad range of craft, design and making disciplines presented in mini documentaries, story-led artist profiles to ingenious animations and music video. Selected from near and far, the films spotlight the everyday habits and skills of ‘makers and smiths’. They reveal what drives enduring professional practice, and illustrate a diversity in film-making creativity and genre as much as the traditional and contemporary craft approaches. Disciplines and techniques include: Basketry, Ceramic Art + Pottery, Costume Design + Making, Fibre Art, Glassmaking, Jewellery + Metal smithing, Pearl Carving, Puppet Making, Screen + Block Printing, Sound Design + Making, Stop Motion Animation, Textiles, Weaving, and Zoetropes. Screened in two parts, each part includes 12 films of varying duration. An Australian panel comprising Carola Akindele-Obe, John Collee, Mary Ellen Cliff and Ron Bradfield Jnr selectedthe 24 films from over 60 submissions received from an open call. The Makers’ Film Festival 2021 was produced to complement the inaugural Indian Ocean Craft Triennial, IOTA21, supported by Lotterywest.
