Founded in 1994 by filmmaker and teacher Phil Hoffman, the Independent Imaging Retreat has provided over 260 participants (two-thirds of which are women) with guidance and training in hand-processing film.* Known collectively as the "Film Farm", over the past 25 years the week-long retreat has fostered experimental hand-processed cinema practices at the local, national, and international level.

Close-Up is thrilled to present the first European solo screening for the US artist Kelly Gallagher, comprising ten years of her moving image work across animation, live action and avant-garde collage. These two programmes offer an overview of a brilliant young artist who has demonstrated a mastery of technique, matched with a strong historical and political consciousness. Hers is a radical critique of the canon and the conservative patriarchy that structures and sustains it. Her stance is feminist, anti-imperialist and anti-racist.
