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!

Vancouver's big show!

Congratulations to the Iris Film Collective on their very first and wonderfully successful OTS8 in Vancouver on June 2. Included a pic here of Alex MacKenzie performing the all too critical projector inspection pre-show.

We're hoping that we'll get to see some of the films from their event at some point, as they begin to travel the circuit. Check out their tumblr page for some great images from the event.

And a big round of applause to the 26 films that made their premiere at Western Front. Filmmakers included:
Eduardo Araquel | Jiles Barrett | Julianne Chapple & Ed Spence | Monica Cheema | Nick Dangeli | Chris Gallagher | Ariel Kirk-Gushowaty | Zoe Kirk-Gushowaty | Jessica Johnson | Jon Johnson | Alex MacKenzie | Laura U. Marks | Michelle Martin | Pia Massie | Una-Ann Moyer | Lisa g Nielsen | Nisha Platzer | Brad Poulsen | Christoph Runne | Alysha Seriani | Mina Shum | Dan Siney | Sydney Southam | Mackenzie Warner | Ryder Thomas White | Stephen Wood
