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!

WNDX OTS8 2013 Registration now Open!

Don't delay, cause this edition fills up faster than a Slurpee cup in July!

WNDX has launched their call for entries for their annual OTS8 event in Winnipeg this fall, and you could be one of the fortunate participants to shoot a roll of cherished Ektachrome for only $15!!! (if you're a Manitoba resident that is).  Follow the link to their page and get your entry fee in thusly!

Seriously, this event is outstanding and even if you are not making a film for it, be sure to come out to see the films. And new this year, instead of closing out the festival as has been our tradition, why make everyone wait for it! We're going to be the opening night screening. Mark your calendars for September 26.

Past films have gone on to screen at festivals around the world, featured in artist retrospectives and even have theatrical runs. Seriously. It was this one, just finished a run at the Bloor Cinema in Toronto, opening for 30 Feet from Stardom. Or I as like to think, 30 Feet From Stardom followed 50 feet of super 8 brilliance :)
