Mire’s laboratory is a shared creative space where one can work with analog film, mostly Super8 and 16mm.
This is a propitious place to experiment processes, (happy) accidents, the unpredictable. A place that invites you to operate machines coming from a film industry which, with the advent of digital, were handed over to filmmakers.
The lab is open to anyone. The sole requirements are to take out a membership, to receive basic training regarding the equipment and to book a time-slot in the shared calendar. Mire prepares the chemistry and members pay a flat rate contribution based on the footage processed.
Mire also rents cameras and sells film stock at cost price.

In order to encourage everyone to get started with analog film practice, Mire regularly holds introduction workshops to film processing or handling of equipment, as well as specific workshops conducted by guest filmmakers.
In addition to these workshops, Mire also offers personalized accompaniment for specific training needs.
