Deadline: Friday February 12

Founded by Alex Rogalski in 2000, the One Take Super 8 Event promotes
small gauge film production and exhibition across Canada and the
United States. In conjunction with the Images Festival, One Take Super
8 will present its first event in Toronto this April.

25 new super 8 films will premiere at the Images Festival, running
from April 1 to 10, 2010, and you could be the director of one of
them. The 25 filmmakers will be selected by an open call lottery. If
you want to be included as one of the potential filmmakers, send your
name, phone #, and film stock desired: Ektachrome (colour), Tri-X (b/
w) or Plus-X (b/w) to email suppressed with the subject
line heading 'IMAGES OTS8'.

The Images Festival One Take Super 8 Event is open to any one
interested in making a film, but limited to GTA residents only. No
experience is required (but creativity always appreciated). If you are
unable to provide your own working super 8 camera, arrangements can be
made if you are one of the selected filmmakers.

You can enter your name in the draw until Friday, February 12 (only
one submission per person), at which time 25 names will be randomly
selected and notified.

Those selected 25 filmmakers will pay a $40 registration fee and
receive 1 cartridge of film (reversal stock only), processing and a
premiere to a wildly excited Images audience! Filmmakers will have 4
weeks to shoot their film and return it for processing. What is shot,
is what is shown. Filmmakers will not have a chance to preview or edit
their film previous to the Images Festival screening.

Thanks to EXCLUSIVE FILM for providing processing!
Thanks to LIFT for production support!
