CineVic Society of Independent Filmmakers is SUPER excited to announce Vancouver Island’s second edition of the One Take Super 8 Event — this time in full Kodak colour!
A fun, non-competitive, community-driven creation and exhibition opportunity for intrigued newbies, amateur artists, and professional filmmakers alike.
Super 8 film took the world by storm in the 1960s and 70s as an accessible way to make “home movies.” Today, the format lives on as an analogue escape from our digital world. The One Take Super 8 Event began in the year 2000 in Regina SK, and since then it has inspired the creation and screening of over 1,000 films in more than 50 locations around the world. CineVic presented the island’s first edition two years ago, and we’re bringing it back for another round of fun!
Earlier this summer, 22 participants from Victoria and the surrounding region answered the open call to participate. They were given a camera, a roll of film, and one week to create their own 3-minute Super 8 movie. The only catch: no editing. The filmmakers had to shoot their scenes in order with no second chances, and they’ll witness their work for the first time along with an audience at the community screening on October 23rd. Soundtracks are optional, and because the Super 8 format does not record sound, they are created separately from the film and manually cued up on the night.
Get your advance tickets now and join us in-person or online for the limited-capacity hybrid screening event!
