Analog Cookbook is a biannual film journal and space for celluloid artists to be fearlessly weird, artistic, and relentless in the pursuit of visual storytelling.

Inspired by the text Recipes for Disaster by Helen Hill, it was created to celebrate artists who work with analog media while providing practical knowledge of celluloid filmmaking.

Who are you anyway?

Analog Cookbook was started by Kate E. Hinshaw- a tactile filmmaker and cinematographer who works with digital and film cameras alike. She shoots and destroys 16mm and super 8mm film through bleaching, scratching, and burning the emulsion in order to render internal experience and emotion visible through through color and texture. Her work has screened at Atlanta Film Festival, Denver Film Festival, and several small festivals. She is currently an MFA candidate at the University of Colorado at Boulder where she teaches a hands-on cinematography course.
