straight 8 is back for 2017 - open today

Post by antibard » Wed Feb 15, 2017 2:09 pm


straight 8 is back for 2017 and this year it's limited to 150 places.

entry is from 8pm gmt today

we invite anyone, anywhere to make a short film on one cartridge of super 8mm cine film

entry costs £66.66, and this year filmmakers need to source their own colour neg cartridge

you send the cartridge back to us unprocessed and upload a soundtrack

we'll take care of processing and hd telecine at cinelab london

if it's great, you'll see your film for the first time at its packed premiere at cannes film festival in may 2017

we have an amazing, stellar jury choosing the best films:

we'll be organising further cinema/festival screenings in london and elsewhere later in the year, showing as many films as we can

finished films need to be delivered, exposed but undeveloped to Cinelab London by 28 March.

we're really excited to be back and can't wait to see a brand new crop of straight 8 films
