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 finishing our OTS8 season in sunny Florida this Friday night (which sounds mighty appealing as the cold and snow encroaches on the great white north). The 24 films are on their reels, ready for the show. Click here to learn more about the event, featured in the Broward-Palm Beach New Times. It will be a packed house, so show up early to get a good seat (I know we're sounding a little repetitive with our 'show up early' warnings, but it's only cause we want you to benefit from reading our blog).
While we're busy premiering brand new super 8 films south of the border, we've been getting good news that some recent super 8 films from our Regina events will be travelling and screening in the new year. Ryan Hill's Light Camera Action (2008), and Helder Carvajal's Beez in the Hood (2008) have been selected for the 3rd annual 8fest in Toronto. In other screening news, Terry Mialkowsky and Shannon Jardine are busy screening two of their past OTS8 films in the new year. Bill Seaton (2008) will be playing at the Victoria Film Festival on February 6, and their 2006 film Belt Buckle/Quonset Hut (2006) will be playing at the Winnipeg Cinematheque on February 12, and 13th.
