As part of their inaugural festival, pic.london presents a two-day film programme exploring the relationship between still and moving images. Beginning with film’s infancy at the end of the 19th Century – through the 1960s avant-garde – this programme investigates the ways in which artists and theorists have engaged the moving image to develop, challenge and critique photographic language.

This special session is the launch of the "Re-engineering the industry" program, dedicated to a Mire laboratory machine, the Debrie contact printer, which makes it possible to copy 16mm film. In the coming months, masterclass, workshop and artist residency will aim at a dialogue between artists and technicians in order to perpetuate and develop the use of machinery abandoned by the film industry and to reappropriate its use for artistic purposes.
