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!

It's been a while since our last post, so just wanted to let everyone know, we took a short break, but are now busy working on our fall programming.

The 10th OTS8 will be here before we know it. We have a tentative date set (which we'll reveal soon) and we'll be hosted again at the RPL Theatre which has been home to the OTS8 since 2007. We're welcoming back a number of sponsors for this year's special anniversary and adding some new ones.

Also, plans are under way for the 5th annual OTS8 at WNDX. Keep checking back for updates for when submissions open. There's some exciting news developing for making a number of past WNDX OTS8 films available much more widely, for those who have missed past year, or want to see some of the films again.

We'll be updating pretty regularly now as things fall into place. Looking forward to an exciting fall of brand new super 8 work!
