One Take Super 8
October 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until October 15, 2022
The One Take Super 8 Event is back again for its third edition on Vancouver Island! Join us for the world premiere of 22 new analogue movies presented LIVE on celluloid Super 8 film at Metro Studio Theatre or online.
Super 8 film took the world by storm in the 1960s and 70s as an accessible way to make “home movies.” Today, the format remains 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.
Earlier this summer, participants from Victoria and the surrounding region answered the open call to participate in a fun, non-competitive, community-driven filmmaking and screening opportunity. 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 screenings. Soundtracks are optional, created separately from the film and manually cued up on the night.
