OptikAllusions is a radical film collective dedicated to social change, based in Oakland, California.
Optik Allusions aims to empower people that are otherwise discriminated against - women, people of color, queers, differently abled, and mentally diverse folks - to utilize the overarching medium of the moving image and create films that provoke and challenge the dominant culture. By pooling our physical and mental resources, we make films in a spirit of collaboration and solidarity, supply a lending library of film equipment for creative projects, offer free, at cost or donation based classes, and host film screenings.
