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!

10 years! You don't look a year over super 8!

I know the anticipation was killing all of you. With camera trigger fingers itching, and eyes twitching, let the fun begin!

The one that started it all is embarking on its 10th annual event.

As you can see, the submission form has been formatted for your pleasure. Please complete and send in as soon as possible to the SK Filmpool. Film cartridges will be arriving there this week, giving you 7 full weeks to shoot your masterpiece (and we do mean masterpiece. you have had 10 years to figure out all the tricks needed to master a one take).

As always, the first 25 people to pay their fee will be the first 25 participants. Limited to SASKATCHEWAN RESIDENTS ONLY.

If you have questions or can't contain your excitement, feel free to drop us a line - onetakesuper8event(at)

Thanks again to our sponsors for making this possible: The Saskatchewan Arts Board, Kodak, Saskatchewan Filmpool, Exclusive Film and Video, Regina Public Library Theatre.
