Presented by Maker&Smith ·

‘Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival’ is an eclectic programme of 28 short films divided across only two screenings, selected from around the globe and that celebrate craft in all its facets. There’s an incredible diversity of styles, people and approaches – from BAFTA-winning, hand-crafted animation and music videos to glimpses behind the scenes in

Produced by the UK Crafts Council and Crafts magazine Real to Reel tours to Australia, thanks to Maker&Smith.

The festival features makers’ studios, a life-size ceramic car and so much more.

You don’t have to be a ‘maker’ to enjoy these films – themes are at times playful or meditative, some highlight social impact projects, there’s poetry and song, even boxing… The materials and crafts include glass, basketry, ceramics, weaving, felting, letterpress, blacksmithing and metalwork, puppet and violin making.
