One Take Super 8 Event
The One Take Super 8 Event (OTS8) began in 2000, with 20 filmmakers each shooting a single reel of Super 8 film, which then premiered to an audience without the filmmakers seeing their work beforehand. All the films were shown as shot. No cuts. No splices. The popularity of this non-competitive festival has allowed it to return each year with more filmmakers participating. To date over 1000 films have been created for over 50 One Take Super 8 Events across North America!

We're finally making our way to the west coast with a package of OTS8 films to start 2009. Hosted by the Pacific Cinematheque and co-programmed with DIM director Amy Kazymerchyk, Vancouver audiences will get to see works from past OTS8 events held across Canada. Many of the films were showcased at the Images Festival in Toronto, this past April, but there are a number of new films created this past fall in Winnipeg and Regina that will be screened as well.
It's an exciting package of 18 films, and it will be great to be showcasing the work in the the city that once housed the blinding light.
The screening will take place at 7:30 pm on Monday, January 19th.
We're also confirming a program at the Winnipeg Cinematheque in Mid February. It will be fantastic to return to the host of the WNDX One Take Super 8 Events with a number of Winnipeg super 8 films that made their premiere there, and will be screened again with work from other OTS8s.
Wishing everyone a happy holidays, and a super(8) new year! Thanks for making 2008 a banner year for the One Take Super8 Event.
