OKO devise and deliver creative super 8 & 16mm filmmaking workshops to help ensure that film remains a viable medium for artists and filmmakers working today.

We run introductory courses for beginners on an ad hoc basis: do get in touch if you're interested in participating and we'll add you to the mailing list for future workshops.

Contact us if you would be interested in booking OKO to facilitate an individually tailored session: we have to date delivered workshops for community groups, galleries, museums, arts organisations, film festivals and HE institutions....
