Hand-Made Films Manifesto (Australia, 1968)
Abstract

Founder of the Australian experimental film collective UBU films, for which this manifesto is written, and the Sydney Filmmakers Cooperative, filmmaker and writer Albie Thoms’s “Hand-Made Films Manifesto” is exemplary of the early DIY ethos, a forerunner of the artisanal films and process cinema movements (see Hoffman’s “Your Film Farm Manifesto on Process Cinema” later in this chapter). In this manifesto he outlines the centrality of the materiality of film to the experimental filmmaking process.
