L'Alternativa Parallel

Independent Film Lab Collectives

Independent Film Lab Collectives

Filmmakers worldwide are banding together to champion creative work on celluloid film.

Innovative creators and filmmakers are setting up and running independent film labs as creative spaces where they have free control over the entire filmmaking process (filming, developing and screening). Based on feedback and mutual support, these artist-run collectives help train up-and-coming directors and offer an alternative form of producing and screening films. Over 36 independent film labs from all over the world have linked up to create an international community on the Filmlabs network.

This year l’Alternativa has teamed up with Crater-Lab, a new Barcelona film lab, to create the Independent Film Lab Collectives, which will feature screenings, performances and a range of activities – including an opening-night improvised screening, a symposium, a roundtable and workshops – to present these labs’ films, philosophy and way of working.

A number of parallel activities (a symposium, a roundtable and two workshops) also tie in with the Independent Film Lab Collectives section.
