Arsenal Film Studios

The Arsenal Film Atelier workshops funded by the Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung have begun! Anna Faroqhi and Haim Peretz got things going in mid-March with class 6a at the Konrad Agahd elementary school in Neukölln and have been exploring the phenomenon of light in film across 150 years of photography and film history: from photosensitive paper and pinhole cameras to experimental cinema and digital recording techniques. 6a’s film work will be presented with the results of the remaining Arsenal Film Ateliers before the summer vacation.

Since this school term, the first Arsenal Film Studios – one-week-long film education workshops – are taking place at schools in the Berlin districts of Kreuzberg, Adlershof and Pankow. Anna Faroqhi, Haim Peretz, Ute Aurand, Robert Beavers, Eunice Martins, Laura Mello and Stefanie Schlüter will develop film projects on the theme of light with the participating children and youths. The works will then be presented at Arsenal.

The Arsenal Film Studios receive funding from the Berlin Projects Funds for Cultural Education.
