CINEVIC PRESENTS – infinEIGHT : Super 8 festival

Supporting a local and international resurgence of Super 8 film CineVic: Society of Independent Filmmakers hosts infinEight – a Super 8 Celebration.

1 The screenings will take place Aug 17, and 18th at St. Anne’s Academy. Their aim is to build audiences and opportunities for artists interested in short form and small gauge cinema.

They will present a retrospective of the Super 8 genre from its inception, illustrating how Super 8 revolutionized filmmaking by putting the tools of cinematic production in the hands of everyday people, through virtual abandonment with the appearance of video, until the current renaissance which Super 8 is experiencing with a new generation of filmmakers seeking the aesthetics and accessibility of this medium and technological advances in film.
