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!

2015 poster, and films are heading to the lab!

We are very excited that we'll be doing another limited edition screen printed poster for this year's event in Saskatoon and Regina, designed by David Lariviere, and printed by Tucker's T-Shirts (but sometimes posters :). Depending on whether you're in Regina or Saskatoon will determine how you see it :) They'll be popping up around town very soon.

The film cartridges were being dropped off fast and furious in both cities today, as we near the 50 total films for the events. Excitement is definitely building toward our screenings at the Roxy and the RPL Theatre on the 4th and 5th of June respectively.

Now filmmakers are busy getting their audio tracks together, and we're thrilled that the line up of participants is a great mix of veteran OTS8 filmmakers and first time super 8 shooters. Here's hoping all the cameras cooperated for one more year. We'll announce the names of the filmmakers here soon.

The films are being shipped to Toronto and thanks to Sebastjan and his team at Niagara Custom Lab for their processing and providing us with the film stock for the event this year.
And a final thanks to PAVED Arts and the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative for being great partners in providing equipment, expertise, and a place to pick up film for the events this year.
