the 8 fest 2011 small-gauge film festival – January 28-30

the 8 fest is back for its fourth year. On the weekend of January 28-30 in Toronto, you'll have a chance to see a wide range of films all shot on small gauge film formats. The screenings will take place at the Trash Palace (89-B Niagara Street at Bathurst).

They will also host a free Super8 filmmaking workshop on the afternoon of Saturday, January 29.  Preregistration is required, however.

The 8 fest is North America's only festival devoted to all forms of small-gauge film, including Super 8, 8mm, 9.5 and loops, shown in their original formats. The 8 fest showcases the 70+ year history of small gauge film—from contemporary artists' work in the form, to its wider cultural use in home movies, instructional loops and beyond.
