Film Societies & Clubs
Film societies and cineclubs foster screen works that would otherwise not be shown in mainstream cinemas. These organizations often fulfill an educational mission, teach filmmaking techniques, and introduce audiences to different audiovisual works through an organized and prepared program of screenings.
Screenings typically help educate participants by including an introduction to the film or discussion about the film, perhaps even featuring the filmmakers themselves.
Organizations like the American Film Institute, Global Cinematography Institute, and many others are organized into collective and local networks. Look for film societies near you for more information.
Cinespace is one such organization. Read on for more about how they use Moondog Labs gear to enhance their programs.
Established in Melbourne, Australia in 2016 as a non-profit association, Cinespace collaborates with people from culturally-diverse and under-represented communities across Victoria through a variety of programs to develop skills, produce work, and build communities and creative careers.
Cinespace supports the Victorian screen industry and Australian screen culture by ensuring that it is representative of the broader inter-cultural community. They work to create greater cultural diversity on screen and behind the scenes.
Smartphone Stories is a community-based filmmaking project partnership with Cinespace founder and trainer Daniel Schultheis. Participants use mobile devices to shoot, edit and distribute original stories. With the democratization of screens, anyone can be a content creator as well as a content consumer. Smartphones also have some unique and specific creative advantages over more traditional means of production.
Moondog Labs is proud to partner with Daniel and Cinespace by providing product bundles like our Anamorphic Filmmaker Kit and Filter Kit to help educate their members on how filmmakers achieve the look and feel of their Smartphone Stories.
