At only a mere 4 days away from Christmas, last minute gift lifts are being wrapped up and the final bow of shopping completion is being tied up and set. However, there are always a few stragglers on everyone’s list and at this point, shops are being overrun with people looking for last minute deals. And good luck being able to afford all of those next day shipping fees if you’re ordering online! If a few of those leftover gift recipients on your list are cinephiles, why not save yourself the trouble of fees and leaving the house to venture into the crowds?! Give them the unique gift of hands-on traditional analog filmmaking! MONO NO AWARE is a “non-profit organization working to promote connectivity through the cinematic experience”.
