Pinhole Photography workshop at CORK FILM CENTRE

pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens but with a tiny aperture (the so-called pinhole)—effectively a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through the aperture and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box, which is known as the camera obscura effect. The size of the images depends on the distance between the object and the pinhole.

In this workshop you will make a pinhole camera, learn how to use it and develop the film in a darkroom. The workshop is open to Sample-Studios members only and is limited to 10 places. All materials will be provided.

Facilitators: María Luisa Santos Cuéllar (Oaxaca, Mexico) & Citlalli González (Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico)





Cork Film Centre has moved its editing, storage and darkroom facilities to the Sample Studios complex in Churchfield as an organisational member. This had been made possible by rationalising our activities, dispensing with equipment hire, and concentrating on the areas of youth filmmaking and workshops, moving image art, and analogue photography.

We will continue to maintain our office in Civic Trust House on Popes Quay.



CORK FILM CENTRE ceases operating Equipment Hire facility

Cork Film Centre will no longer be providing equipment for hire. The funding cuts of a number of years ago have resulted in the rationalisation of our activities. Our main role now is the provision of courses and workshops, and supporting aspiring young filmmakers and entry level artists taking their first steps. It is therefore essential that we maintain our equipment to best serve that purpose.

We wish to thank all our friends and customers, and wish them the best into the future.
