Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival

The Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival, produced in collaboration with the Crafts Council and Crafts Magazine, presented an eclectic programme of short films, documentaries, maker profiles and hand-crafted animations.

Taking place across 8th, 9th, 10th of May 2018 at Picturehouse Central, the festival, now in its third year showcased artisans and makers from around the globe, from a basket weaver in west Africa to a London based potter. These films offered an intimate portrayal of lives devoted to artistry and a personal perspective of modern day craft.

In an increasingly digitalised and mass produced world, we believe in the time, passion and care devoted to an artisans way of working. Timeless, uncompromising techniques, applied with skill and purpose by true masters of their trade.
