Join MONO NO AWARE at AgX for a SUNDAY AM COFFEE & NON-TOXIC PROCESSING MIXER!  Drop by from 10AM to 2PM on Sunday, March 24th to learn how to process your black and white film using beer and coffee - Super 8mm, 16mm, 35mm, Medium Format, 4" x 5", 70mm,  ALL FORMATS WELCOME !  Everyone who attends will learn how to mix their own negative processing chemistry using a combination of consumable items from the grocery store. We’ll go over basic non-toxic processing options, then mix a synthesized solution created by Chris Knudsen and Steve Cossman based on the classic Caffenol (coffee) recipe and a beer processing “soup” developed by friend of the org (and master chemist) Dagie Brundert.  All ingredients, equipment, and safety gear will be provided - Bring Your Own Black & White as an exposed roll/cartridge of black and white film, still or moving images. We will also have light tables and projectors available to view your work.

The workshop will be followed with a presentation by Steve Cossman about operating MONO NO AWARE and their approach to building a filmmaking community.
