Level 2 Workshop | Boston

Posted on July 5, 2018

AMIA, in partnership with The Film Foundation, offers two levels of training for projectionists and staff presenting 35mm film in theaters. There are two workshops offered in 2018 – Level One in Chicago, IL (August 28-30), and Level Two in Boston, MA (October 15-17).


The three-day intermediate workshop is intended for projectionists with a good understanding of the operation of a film projector.  Attendees should feel comfortable with threading and light maintenance before attending the Workshop.

The workshop curriculum will –

  • Assess and reinforce correct techniques and projection skills
  • Provide adequate, small-group and one-on-one training in the areas of proper projection maintenance and configuration
  • Provide an understanding of the history and context of film projection
  • Provide an understanding of proper presentation and showmanship

Class size will be limited to 12 projectionists to allow for the hand-on training.  The workshop will be held at Boston, Light & Sound at their facility in Boston on October 15-17, 2018.

This is a unique opportunity for small group and one-on-one training for projectionists working with 35mm film, especially with archival and rare prints.


Registration will open July 25, 2018.

Workshop fee is  $350.
