Movie Night at DCP: A Single Frame Nov. 3

a-single-frame-01-0720pm

While on a trip to Dubrovnik in 2007, Jeff Bowden encounters a photograph of a refugee boy taken during the war in Kosovo. Driven by this haunting image, Bowden sets out to find the child. His journey takes him from Texas to Paris, and ultimately to the post-war culture of the Balkans, where he combines forces with an experienced war-time fixer.

Weaving together the stories of the war, the now-deceased photojournalist, Alexandra Boulat, and the search for the boy, A Single Frame is a testament to the power of photography and to the belief that every life matters.

Jeff Bowden will be at the screening and we will have a Q&A session afterwards.

In 2007, Bowden walked in to an upstairs alcove at War Photo Limited gallery in Dubrovnik, Croatia and gasped. War Photo was featuring the work of female photographers. Included among a collection of cover page cataclysms – cars blow to smithereens and buildings on fire was a portrait of an Albanian boy. “I coverd my mouth,” Bowden remembers. “I was afraid I might cry out.” A veteran war photographer described the boy’s expression as that of a middle aged man. Bowden’s daughter, Gracie, witnessed Bowden’s reaction. Three years later, she gave Bowden the photograph as a surprise gift. He framed it and hung it in his office. Three more years passed. “I never forgot about that boy,” Bowden said, “Eventually I decided I had to know what happened to him.” Ultimately, Bowden made six trips to Kosovo.

At the time of the search, Bowden managed a family real estate partnership. Prior to that he was a senior editor and columnist at D Magazine, the city magazine of Dallas. In 2005, Bowden produced and directed the feature documentary, Get Back to Dirt, which was broadcasted by Fox/Speed Channel. Bowden is currently at work on a documentary about his connection to a small town in Sicily, which was destroyed in an earthquake in 1938. He is married and has three grown children. He and his wife, Jennifer, live in Austin. Bowden is executive producer of A Single Frame.

This movie is proudly being sponsored by the Texas Photographic Society.

Beginner Darkroom Classes – October classes & November 13 workshop

trays-dallas-center-for-photography

Beginner Darkroom Classes

Photography can be so much more magical than pixels trapped behind a glass screen. Liberate your images into the real world! You’ll learn to process your own black and white film, make contact sheets, select the best frame for printing and work with an enlarger. Using chemistry and light you’ll create unique prints, completely hand made by you.

This introduction to black and white darkroom is for only two kinds of people; those who have worked in a darkroom and want to get back into it and those who haven’t done it yet! It’s the perfect blend of science and art and as close as you’ll get to alchemy.

Available as a 3 part evening class series starting Tuesday, October 18, 2016 and a one day workshop on Sunday, November13, 2016.

Our new darkroom facility was custom built just for teaching small groups. We have a film processing area, a printing darkroom with 10 enlarger stations, custom sinks, ample air conditioning and ventilation systems, and wise teachers to help you develop your skills.

What to bring: One roll of exposed 35mm or 120 Kodak or Ilford black and white film. No XP-2 or similar C41 process film. If you aren’t sure, write us and ask!

The Lone Star Film Society Presents RAGING BULL

Raging-Bull-Thumb

RAGING BULL
Saturday, April 4, 2015 – 2:00 PM
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

The Lone Star Film Society (LSFS) and Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will screen Martin Scorsese’s RAGING BULL as part of the 2015 ArthouseFW spring schedule. Dr. Joan McGettigan will introduce the film and lead a discussion following the screening.

With a big leap in his career as the director of the Roger Corman-produced BOXCAR BERTHA (1972), Martin Scorsese polished his style and turned around to create his breakout film MEAN STREETS (1973) the following year. The film would begin a long time collaboration between Scorsese and Robert De Niro, which reached a pinnacle in the 1980 film RAGING BULL. Following Jake LaMotta (Robert De Niro) as an Italian American middleweight boxer suffering from neuroses that manifest in the destruction of the world around him, Scorsese created a defining film of the decade and gave De Niro his first Best Actor Academy Award after his third nomination.

Individual screening tickets are $7 for the general public, and $5 for LSFS members and Reel People. Currently enrolled college students with a valid ID receive free admission.

Tickets and season passes are for sale at lonestarfilmsociety.com and will be available at the door beginning one hour before show time.

The Lone Star Film Society Presents GREMLINS

Gremlins-Thumb

GREMLINS
Friday, April 3, 2015 – 10:00 PM
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

The Lone Star Film Society (LSFS) and Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will screen Joe Dante’s GREMLINS as part of the 2015 ArthouseFW spring schedule. During the screening, the LSFS will raffle off an 11×17 poster signed by Dante himself! All those who attend will automatically be entered for a chance to win.

The 1984 instant classic GREMLINS epitomizes Dante’s unique voice as a filmmaker; an otherworldly horror film set in your very familiar backyard. The film tells the story of cinema’s cutest fuzzball, Gizmo, and the very big responsibility required to keep him from spawning terrifying, destructive little monsters. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Chris Colombus (HOME ALONE, THE GOONIES), GREMLINS was a unique box-office smash in a summer full of instant classics.

Individual screening tickets are $7 for the general public, and $5 for LSFS members, Modern Contemporaries and Reel People. Currently enrolled college students with a valid ID receive free admission.

Tickets and season passes are for sale at lonestarfilmsociety.com and will be available at the door beginning one hour before show time.

Canon In Action Tour

Canon In Action Tour

http://inactiontour.usa.canon.com/

Interesting in learning how to shoot like a pro?

Luckily for you, Canon’s very own Canon In Action Tour will be coming to Dallas on Saturday, June 28th and Sunday, June 29th.

The tour will be taught by Canon Explorers of Light Jack Reznicki and Jim Divitale, along with Amina Moreau of Stillmotion.

Jack is best known for his commercial work with companies like Hyatt and Time Magazine, as well as teaching at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

Jim’s digital photography is featured in magazines like Rangefinder and Professional Photographer and lectures at WPPI, Imaging USA, and Photoshop World.

Amina is the cofounder of Emmy Award-winning Stillmotion, whose client list includes Apple and CBS.

There is going to be a Saturday seminar and a few Sunday workshops on June 28th and 29th.

The Saturday seminar’s goal is to teach imaging essentials and help you understand and expand your creative options. Thoroughly understanding photography principles like ISO and aperture is essential to putting your photography ideas to practice. The Saturday seminar will cover lens choice, camera settings and features, light exposure, portraits, landscapes, HD video, and a whole lot more. We’ll learn quality vs. quantity of light, incorporating video into your image making process. Jack, Jim, and Amina are going to let you discover the possibilities in your camera so that you can discover the possibilities in your photography.

The Sunday workshop is an opportunity to practice your new skills, work with live models, and try out professional Canon equipment. We’re going to have interactive discussions and hands-on exercises so attendees will receive feedback for every milestone hit. The workshop is designed to give attendees the tools to create visually stunning and engaging videos and photography.

The photography portion of the workshop is going to let you practice the concepts of flash photography, like functions of Speedlites and ETTL. Since light can be unpredictable, Jim and Dave are going to work with the class on mastering light using flash.

Camera movement, audio capture, and shot sequencing are the main points the video portion of the workshop will cover. Filmmakers use this knowledge every day as the foundation to any well-made video.

It’s going to be a weekend packed with learning! Head over to CanonInAction.com and use the discount code CIAMZED10 for $10 off Saturday tickets!

It includes celebrated classics, highly anticipated new releases, films for children and families, and educational opportunities.
