The contact printer is one of the most essential tools in the cinema, especially if you project your films on film. But this service is becoming increasingly rare and expensive.

In this workshop, Théo Parent will show you how to use a Steenbeck editing table as a color contact printer. Work will be done on color negative film to produce fine color prints, developing using the ECP process.

At the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to make your own color projection print!

Motivated by the discovery of unique aesthetic processes, he practices experimental cinema and navigates exploratory approaches to fiction and documentary. Versatile, he has experience in cinematography and directing, as well as in production, sound design and various experimental practices, such as hand-developing film. His most recent film, 117/323, was presented at the 40th Rendez-vous Québec cinéma. In 2022, he received support from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec to make his first hybrid short film (fiction/experimental), Les fougères prédatent les dinosaures.
