FLEX (the Florida Experimental Film/Video Festival) in Gainesville, Florida still shows super 8 films on film (on a newly refurbished Elmo ST-1200). In fact, one of the guests for the upcoming festival (Feb. 20-23) is Helga Fanderl, who will be showing her work exclusively on super 8. We haven't gotten a lot of super 8 submissions in the past, but we've shown several super 8mm films by Paul Clipson as well as one by Sandra Gibson in past festivals.
And while I'm talking about FLEX, I might mention that the remaining guests for this year's curated festival are Jackie Goss (Feb. 20), Michael Gitlin (Feb. 22), and Johan Grimonprez. Each filmmaker will be showing a program of her/his work as well as a program of work that influenced her/him. We're still finalizing details, but we should be posting the full list of titles on our website (www.flexfest.org) before long.
For those interested in submitting to the 2011 competitive festival, the call for entries should be going out in May.
FLEX Artistic Director

I have a number of films that were completed for a workshop that my organization hosted, and I would like to submit the completed films on behalf of the filmmakers.
