This workshop is for youth ages 16 to 24.

No experience necessary. All equipment provided.


This two-day workshop introduces you to Super8 film. You'll learn about this unique format, then create a short black-and-white film by shooting and processing your own. That's right! You'll learn how to:

  • operate handheld super8 film cameras!
  • expose photo film to light rays!
  • hand-process the film in photochemicals

Arrive with an idea, or experiment with form and visuals to create an original film. One roll of black & white reversal film per team.

The final films will be screened Sunday night, so invited your friends and family!

New to VIVO? Parents are welcome to come take a free tour of VIVO! We're at 2625 Kaslo Street, Vancouver. Open Tue-Fri 11am-6pm.


Nisha Platzer is a filmmaker and photographer from Vancouver, working in analogue and handmade formats. She studied at the international school of Cinema in San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba and at Concordia University in Montreal. Nisha’s short films have screened at festivals in North America, South America and Europe.  She likes to play with combining various artistic mediums to explore themes of identity and the intersections therein. Nisha was an artist in residence at the James Black Gallery from 2015-2016 and has given experimental film workshops in Colombia, Uruguay and Cuba.

She loves to work with creative people of all ages, so get in touch to share your artistic ideas!


This workshop is part of Capture Photography Festival.

Capture's inspiring programming runs the entire month of April! Check out their website for details.

Refunds: Class sizes are small, and our instructors need to be paid–if you can’t make a class that you’ve signed up for, we need time to alert wait-listed participants. VIVO presently asks that withdrawals from workshops be requested by emailing at least 12 days prior to the workshop date, if you would like to receive a refund minus a $5 administration fee. Thanks!

VIVO Media Arts

VIVO MEDIA ARTS CENTRE, incorporated in 1973 as the Satellite Video Exchange Society (SVES), is Vancouver’s oldest media arts access centre. VIVO continues to fulfill its founding vision by directly supporting independent artists, community-based producers and activists to develop and exchange their skills in a supportive environment. Our members gather around the tools and material means of production to invent new understandings, new genres and new friendships. Reflecting both the diversity of contemporary technologies and the symbiotic communities that coalesce around new forms of knowledge and creativity, our programming fosters formal, aesthetic and critical approaches to media arts practice. VIVO builds an audience of makers, organizers and critics through artists in residence, lectures, workshops, performances, exhibitions and curatorial and archival research. As an integral artist run centre in Vancouver, our resources and facilities will continue to inform and influence engagement in all levels of media art investment.
