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 days away

Everything is coming together for Saskatoon's 1st and Regina's 11th event. Hard to believe that we're almost ready to light up the screen with 40 new super 8 films!  Our fingers crossed approach worked, and the films are safely now in Saskatoon processed. I haven't opened the box yet, so I have no idea of anyone got an image, but at least we've got something to put in the projector and hold our breath.

Programs are designed and awaiting printing, soundtracks have been coming in steadily (along with plans for a few live performances which is always fun!)

And we are very excited to announce we will be screening in the main theatre at the Roxy. It's a beautiful cinema and it's exciting that we get to add it to our OTS8 history. We've screened in converted old garages, unoccupied old bank buildings, lofts, churches, waffle houses but there is something special about being in a cinema that reminds you why people fell in love with going to the movies (and I mean movies in a very celluloid sense).

We'll keep you updated as our screenings approach and definitely post some pics and reviews after, but now to the nitty gritty work of splicing those reels together and getting programs folded.

See you at the super 8 movies!
