The international Craft Film Festival comes to South Australia

Guildhouse is thrilled to be hosting the South Australian premiere of Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival.

Real to Reel is an international short film festival curated by Crafts Council UK aimed at exploring the human relationship with making and materials. A panel of judges has reviewed hundreds of submissions from all over the world to bring you their signature selection of 32 films.

This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate craft in action and the narratives, passion and skill inherent in the creation of works. The programme unites some unusual and perhaps unexpected tales of making – from miniatures, to replica birds’ eggs, to a human powered bakery – along with animations that bring to life fibre, wool, clay and found objects.

Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival is produced by the Crafts Council and Crafts magazine, and brought to Australia by Maker&Smith.

Real to Reel will be touring South Australia in partnership with Guildhouse. The Adelaide screening will followed by screenings in Port Lincoln and Mt Gambier.
