2012, here we come!

Planning is underway for the 6th annual event.  Can you believe it - 6 YEARS!  We have a few surprises up our sleeve for this years screening, but more on that later.  In a few days we will be announcing out Call for Filmmakers and 2012 calendar.  :D


almost digitized!

Wow, it seemed like it was yesterday, but it was actually 4 months ago! Slowly we are digitizing the films and they will be online soon.

Check back in December for information on next year's event.


Last nights event!

Last night's 5th annual event was amazing!  The new location was a welcome change that comfortably fit 150 people.  We served popcorn, nachos, coffee and soda along with 25 incredible original one-take super 8 films!  Thanks for everyone who came out to support this super local grassroots event.  Take a look at some photos from the event on our facebook page - 2011 event photos!

If you are interested in making a film next year, or would like to attend the event, email us at super8syracuse@gmail.com and we will add you to our email list! 


Live screening tomorrow night!

It's here!  The anticipated 5th annual LIVE screening!  We will be premiering 28 new super 8 films that have never been seen before.  See you there!


We found a location for our screening

It's been wonderful having the previous 4 year screenings at Funk-n-Waffles, but honestly we've out grown the space!  For this years event, we've got a new location planned - the event will be held in a vacant storefront in downtown Syracuse.  It's perfect for our needs and we are looking forward to fitting 150+ people in it!
