Thanks Ken,
A lot of talk about prints (eg - "we always obtain
prints, if at all possible.") but super 8 prints are
rare now. Do you show at least some super 8 or 8mm
originals every year? I love original film.
I've only ever been to the Ann Arbor 8mm Film
Festival. After that ended, did your festival start
showing small format films regularly?
John.
