MONO NO AWARE is a non-profit cinema-arts organization offering year-round analog filmmaking workshops to the community teaching: Super 8mm, 16mm filmmaking, 2-D animation and 3-D puppet animation, Production for Independent Film, Hand-processing, Alternative-processing and Non-toxic-processing Techniques, Film Preservation, Handmade Emulsion, Advanced Super 16mm filmmaking and a range of special workshops led by visiting filmmakers. As an extension of the educational initiatives, we rent analogue filmmaking equipment, make Steenbeck flat-bed editing and JK or Oxberry optical printing facilities available to the public and import/distribute film stocks. Through our outreach program we present these same workshops at numerous universities, film festivals, and institutions throughout the US. This year we have presented workshops at The Japan Society (Manhattan, NY) The Oak Cliff Film Festival (Dallas, TX) The Queens Museum (Queens, NY) and this August we’ll travel to the Thomas Edison National Park to conduct a re-imagining kinetoscopes workshop inside the historic Black Maria (West Orange, NJ). MONO NO AWARE presents a monthly screening series entitled CONNECTIVITY THROUGH CINEMA with visiting filmmakers and most recently a co-presentation of a three-day retrospective ‘Super 8 Poetics’ the works of Stephanie Gray at The Anthology Film Archives. We’ve also started a reference library with a focus on cinema history, theory and technical filmmaking publications.
