straight 8 2012 is open now for slamdance + cannes

Post by straight8productions » Tue Nov 08, 2011 2:40 pm

straight 8 invites anyone, anywhere to make a short film on one cartridge of super 8 — without editing.

the first time filmmakers see their film is at one of our awesome worldwide premieres, like at our infamous cannes film festival screening or slamdance.

check out the 2012 trailer here:

to be eligible for our slamdance screening - you need to get your completed film back to us by december 12th 2011.
(all entries received by the slamdance deadline will also be eligible for cannes and all other 2012 selections.)

if you miss the slamdance deadline...
to be eligible for cannes and everything else in straight 8 2012, you need to get your film back to us by march 29th 2012

enter now at to join in

entry costs £60 (+vat if you live in the eu), or a bit less if you're a student

we'll send out your cartridge, you shoot it and send it back to us unprocessed, and upload an original soundtrack

if it's great, the first time you'll see it is at our awesome cannes film festival screening, the incredible slamdance festvial in park city utah, sheffield docfest, rushes soho shorts fest in london, or one of a growing number of fantastic festivals and screenings around the world.

if you've checked out our trailer, and you're interested in entering, have a browse of the awesome films on our vimeo channel to get some inspiration!

and if you want to help us to organise a straight 8 screening at a festival/venue/school/arena/tent near you, please get in touch with
