It will be a digital transfer screening at the festival, so seeing the original film remains a privilege to those who saw it at the Gas Station Theatre during WNDX last October in Winnipeg. And for those needing more of a super 8 fix at Hot Docs, I highly recommend seeing Our Nixon by director Penny Lane. An incredible assembly of footage shot by Nixon's aides during his time in office. The transfer looks amazing, and it's a fascinating look at how super 8 really was the original iPhone when it came to constant and instant motion picture making. And for recent super 8 filmmaking, Kelly O'brien's Softening reflects on super 8 as a home movie device in her incredibly personal and beautiful family diary film.
Big news coming later this week announcing another couple of OTS8 events :)
