The 8 fest* is a unique festival that presents all forms of small-gauge
film: 8mm, Super 8 and 9.5mm, as well as works in installation, loops, and
'proto-cinema devices' like zoetropes.* The 8 fest* is a festival for anyone
using small-gauge to create rough little gems on film – personal, handmade,
experimental, animations, diaries, essays, collage, cut-ups,
We present audiences with films from Toronto, across Canada and from
small-gauge creators and communities around the world. *The 8
fest*showcases the 70+ year history of small-gauge film – from
artists' work in
the form since the 50's and 60's, to it's wider cultural use in home movies,
instructional loops and beyond.
*The 8 fest* provides a forum for filmmakers who want to show their work on
small-gauge and for people who want to see this work in its original
formats. *The 8 fest* is committed to keeping the exhibition of small-gauge
film a viable presentation medium.
