Research Weekends

2023 Research Weekends are yet to be announced.  They will take place outdoors at our location outside Boulder, Colorado, and possibly elsewhere.



We don’t know what the pandemic will do this year, so we’re offering all three of our regular retreats.  As we get closer to the events, we’ll see whether the world cooperates!  If it doesn’t and we have to cancel, all money paid to us will be fully refunded.

Pacific Northwest Film Camp June 10 – 17, 2023.  Spend a week at the beach exploring celluloid film in and out of the water and and forests of Orcas Island in Washington State’s beautiful San Juan Islands.

The Handmade Filmmaking Camp July 29 – August 6, 2023.  The Handmade Film Institute’s foundational workshop. A week-long retreat at 8200 feet in the Rocky Mountains engaged in a comprehensive investigation of film as a physical medium.

The Wilderness Film Expedition  July 8 – 17, 2023.  A backcountry expedition where we shoot, process, edit and premiere in the wilderness, carrying all our gear with us into a high and wild mountain landscape.
