The event is as easy as pie
Shoot a 3 min, 20 sec Super-8 film in one take and you’re done! No movie will ever be easier to make!
2018 marks the 13th year we have partnered with the WNDX Festival of Moving Image in bringing the One Take Super-8 Event to Winnipeg. In just a few short years, this event has become one of the most important incubators for new works in Manitoba. Films completed for prior editions of the Winnipeg event have gone on to be selected for screening at Hot Docs, The Images Festival, Antimatter, the $100 Film Festival, the Festival dé Cinemas Différents in Paris, among many more.
The premise is simple. Participants sign up on a first come, first served basis and do not need to have any previous filmmaking experience. The $25 participation fee is used to cover the material costs associated with participation: film stock, processing, shipping and digital transfer. Films are then shot in one take (no cuts, no splices – the only type of editing that is allowed is in-camera work) and filmmakers view their works for the first time at the event final screening, alongside the audience.
Please note: this year we are striving for equitable gender representation of our community and will be limiting the number of participants. Registration will open on Thursday August 2, 2018 at 6pm and can only be done in person at the Winnipeg Film Group Production Centre Office (100 Arthur Street | Floor 3 | Room 304). No registrations will be permitted by email, online or over the phone.
