Craft Film Festival

  • Northcity4 61 Weston Street Brunswick, VIC, 3056 Australia (map)

The Craft Film Festival 2018 will follow on from the inaugural festival from 2016. Northcity4 has obtained the rights to present the feature J. FRED WOELL: AN AMERICAN VISION. The film follows Woell for six years through his teaching at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and its mentorship programs, and places him in a rightfully significant place as one of the first craft artists who opened the door to using found objects to comment on the times. J. FRED WOELL: AN AMERICAN VISION captures the essence of a political artist who believed deeply in the power of the creative spirit. 

Through interviews with historic and contemporary curators, artists and writers the film reveals much about Woell’s underlying convictions: to protect the environment, to respect all, particularly native peoples. His work calls upon all of us to make our world, our home, a better world.

We will screen the feature with a number of craft based short films.
