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!

OTS8 at Prairie Scene

The great plains descend on Ottawa this spring with a showcase of 20 films made for OTS8 events in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Each province will have 10 films selected from the past 10 events in Regina, and 5 years in Winnipeg as part of the WNDX festival. The National Arts Centre's Prairie Scene is an expansive showcase and we're thrilled to be a part of it.

Here's a link to their site (check out their other great programming highlighting prairie artists).

If you're in Ottawa on April 27th, join us at the Mercury lounge (56 Byward Market Square) at 7:30pm, where our gracious hosts and partners from IFCO will be helping us to present the original films, as a rare opportunity to see them on super 8 again. If the location sounds familiar, it's where we held the Ottawa OTS8 back in 2007.
