NO CUTS, NO SPLICES: THE ONE TAKE SUPER 8 SHOWCASE

FRI, FEB 13 / 7 pm
Curated and Introduced by Alex Rogalski
FREE ADMISSION

The One Take Super 8 Event is an annual prairie tradition which began in Regina in 2000, and has since traveled across North America including three annual events at Winnipeg’s WNDX festival.

Filmmakers are given a single roll of super 8 film (remember them from home movies of the 60s and 70s), and use in-camera edits to make a cinematic masterpiece. These three minute films are premiered to audiences and the filmmakers at the same time. The filmmakers have no chance to rewind, edit or change their film before the audience sees it. What they shoot is what we get – making for an exciting night of cinema.

The One Take Super 8 Event has spread across Canada and the US, screening hundreds of films to thousands over the past eight years, with films from these events going on to screen at international festivals. Since its inception, over 400 unique films have been created through this program.

The No Cuts, No Splices: The One Take Super 8 Showcase is a curated showcase of films made for past events in Winnipeg, Regina, and Montreal, reflecting the variety, diversity and creativity of independent filmmakers.
