Film Bee is a collective of film makers that share film making resources and maintain a darkroom at the superb Star and Shadow Cinema. We make films on super 8 and 16mm predominately and usually process these films ourselves.
Film Bee started in 2003 with a drawing on film workshop inspired by Helen Hill’s book ‘ Recipes for Disaster. A darkroom was run at the Waygood gallery and eventually had a permanent home when the Star and Shadow Cinema was born in 2006.
We all work with film because we love it and are happy to help anyone else use the darkroom to develop their own film.
The Star and Shadow Cinema and Film Bee are based in Newcastle Upon Tyne in the UK.
