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 9th annual OTS8 line up and wrap up
Another great year is wrapped at WNDX with fantastic films and great audiences. Wish I could have stayed longer, but nice to catch up with everyone on the whirlwind trip. The 9th annual edition showcased a lot of new faces and many returning. A shout out to Cecilia Araneda who moves on from WNDX after founding and fostering the festival for so long.
Many hits throughout the night, including Ian Bawa & Markus Henkels' hitman ghost story, and Curtis Weibe's sequel to his popular Rocket John.
Stephane Oystryk retuned to the OTS8 with a beautiful VIA train travelogue that was breathtaking and sublime, and Scott Fitzpatrick's documentary on historic Winnipeg homes was emblematic of what is possible with a plan, some research and creative limitations of a single cartridge.
And for all out visual epicness, Aaron Zeghers, Darren Young and Jim Pomeroy packed incredible visual impact into small gauge wonder. They looked amazing on the big screen and can't wait to see those works travel to other festivals soon.
Thanks for another great year WNDX, looking forward to the 10th anniversary next year!
