Dear members,
This year, we managed to accomplish several of our goals despite the many limitations. While we had to stop in-person activity, we worked on building an active online community that would bring FilmSoc closer to you. Our new server enabled us to update our web services and create the Forum, which has allowed members to follow workshops and screenings regularly, and seek collaboration on personal projects. I have also worked hard to receive several grants from the Union to update our equipment. We have been able to buy LED panels, a Blackmagic 6K, Resolve Studio, a 4K camera, and more.

Next year, I would like to focus on celluloid. We recovered our Arri 16mm, but it needs to be put to use. Workshops and experiments will be a priority, as well as restoring our Steenbeck. Help for getting internships is another goal for next year, and we have already contacted several production companies. A new storage PC for our archive shall be set up for production files to be stored in one centralised location. I have secured our tapes to be transferred as soon as possible, with 16mm films to be scanned next year. The studio’s post-production workflow will also be updated. We removed deadlines on Affiliate Bids and this shall continue next year, as it has allowed us to help members with their projects and ideas.

I hope that next year will give us the chance to make up for what we could not do this year, and I am looking forward to working with you in person again.
