Super GR8NOVEMBER 2013
- Super GR8 Film Festival in Harrisonburg, Virgina
The Super Gr8 Film Festival is a community-organized event that will feature 56 (maybe more this year!) Super 8 short films made by local filmmakers. Many of the filmmakers making these films have never made a short film before this event. These films are edited in-camera, shot without sound and will be just over 3 minutes in length. Each filmmaker then creates an original soundtrack for their short film. This festival is unique in that none of the filmmakers get to see their finished films until the night of the festival screenings. All films are shot on Pro8mm workflows. A truly one-of-a-kind event.

If you would like to participate in any of these events, please contact the events webpage, or email
