What is the coziest, kookiest, coolest small-gauge film festival in the world? It’s the 8 fest!

“The 8fest is a festival for anyone using small-gauge to create rough little gems on film. A unique Toronto-based film festival that presents all forms of small-gauge film: 8mm, Super 8 and 9.5mm, as well as works in installation, loops, personal, handmade, experimental, animations, diaries, essays, collage, cut-ups, performance/film, music/film and ‘proto-cinema devices’ like zoetropes.”

You too can be part of the magic… submissions are due September 30 for the 2018 festival, happening in Toronto on January 25 – 28. More info here!
