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 8th Annual OTS8 Event tonight!

We return like an inevitable prairie winter to Winnipeg tonight to premiere 28 new films from Manitoba filmmakers, as we shift from closing night of the WNDX festival to our Thursday time slot. All else remains the same. We'll be lighting up the screen at the Gas Station Theatre (for our 5th consecutive year!).

Hard to believe it's been 8 years since we held our first event at the inaugural WNDX showing 30+ films at the Grafitti Gallery. Since then, well over 200 films have been produced and screened at other festivals worldwide, garnering accolades and awards. Returning filmmakers are amongst the bunch tonight, including Scott Fitzpatrick (also featured at WNDX), Aaron Zeghers, Ryan Simmons, Danielle Sturk, the Terrible Friends and Dave Barber with perhaps the most hyped film of the year. All we've heard is that it is based on a true story....

Look for a review of the show and some pictures here soon, but in the meantime, looking forward to seeing you at the screening and the rest of the WNDX festival.
