Bagerooo, three!

recent Super 8 filmmaking!
sponsored by the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre

An exciting collection of new small gauge films and one rarely screened older film closes out this year’s screenings! These films were selected from an international call for recent Super 8 films. Augmenting the selection of recent work is a new performance by local super 8 hero, Peggy Anne Berton.

This year we saw an increase in submissions from Spanish-speaking countries and from filmmakers under the age of thirty, further proof that we’re just scratching the surface of contemporary interest in small gauge filmmaking. Tonight’s program features beautiful city symphonies, celebrations of childhood, gothic nightmares and abstractions drawn from an thoughtful attentiveness to the natural world–sometimes in the same film! All films in Super 8!
