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!

One Take Super 8 Nation

The OTS8 is infectious. We're steamrolling into autumn with 3 great events.

Winnipeg will kick off the season with the 4th annual event to close out WNDX. All the spots are seized, cameras are rolling, and in a week or so, all the films will be ready for processing. We'll be premiering all the films October 11th at the Gas Station Theatre. This will be a great way to spend Thanksgiving weekend.

Regina follows that on November 5th. Submissions are still being accepted, but hurry, because over half the spots have been taken. We'll be showing all the films on November 5th at the Regina Public Library Theatre. We're starting our poster design now, and it will be another one of kind silkscreen print. Sure to be a collectible, and as unique as the films we showcase. Can you believe it's our 9th annual event. We're on the cusp of a decade of OTS8 films!

And, not to be left out of all this fun our friends in the east (at least from a prairie perspective) are planning an OTS8 for November 21 in Montreal! It's our 3rd time in Montreal, and we couldn't be happier about this event, partnering with our friends in Double Negative. They have their entry form ready online, and are willing to hook up first time filmmakers with ready to go cameras. More details about location (and their fabulous poster as well), in the days to come.

Looks like a great fall and the potential of over 100 new super 8 films to satisfy all your small gauge needs.
