You probably know them well, those grainy bits of footage that immediately give you that nostalgic vibe: that's Super8-mm film. Super 8 was developed in 1965 and heralded as the new film format for home video. One of the world's few Super8 labs can be found in The Hague. All the more reason for SMFF to create a program about Super 8 for Cinecity The Hague!
Frank Bruinsma, of the Super8 Reversal Lab Nederland, is the Super 8 guru in The Hague. He'll give you a complete workshop on Super 8 on 16 October, explaining everything from filming to producing the end product. You will also get to see the 8mm-movie 'Licht' from Andre Schreuder, which was selected for the prestigious Quinzaine des Realisateurs in Cannes. Schreuder will also be present to talk about his film. We will show you a compilation of footage shown at the Flicker Festival and the Cambridge Super 8 Fest and Roy Rezaäli will tell you all about Chill'm Guerrilla, a movement that started in The Hague that aims to provide an alternative to the expensive Hollywood methods of filmmaking, and promotes the use of and interest for Super 8. Members of Chill'm Guerrilla have created two short movies especially for SMFF 2010.
During the workshop we will make the trailer for Shoot 8. Do you have a good idea? Let us know! We're also looking for 8mm films (old family holiday shots will do great!), camera's, projectors and projection screens. Do you have anything we could use? Mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Shoot 8: 16 October 2010, 14.30-16.30 - Location Strijkijzer - 7,50 euro
