How does an intrepid film make its way, through jungles of images, seas of sound, and often years of conceptualizing and production, to the screen? Science New Wave presents an exclusive glimpse into the production process with a few of their favorite filmmaker. The event also serves a launch for the latest feature from their sister-site Labocine, which will allow the incorporation of filmmaking Field Notes directly into its film pages, allowing viewers a deeper dive into fascinating work. Much of the labor of filmmaking – hours of experiments, outtakes, and test footage, not to mention scrapped scripts, endless interview transcriptions, and deep research into tangential leads – ends up invisible in the final creation.


This night of film talks, and Field Notes hereafter, offers a glimpse of some of that hidden wealth. Including work from Carin Leong, Jaydn Gosselin, & Jacob Fertig, Gavati Wad, Jennifer Reeves, Katy Scoggin & David Cohen, Kelly Sutherland and Omar Al-Nakib. Photo credit: Florencia Silva García. This screening includes a post-screening reception.
