straight 8

straight up filmmaking since 1999

one super 8 cartridge no editing

we help people get films out of their heads and onto a screen and into other peoples’ heads

(or what’s the point?)

if you have a straight 8 in you

we want to see it

hello chicago

we're over the moon and grateful that megan marie and eliaz are putting on this first ever chicago straight 8 screening, following an excitable chat in the bar after our cannes 2017 premiere! 

we urge anyone in chicago to go, and to bring friends. because we'd love to see some great chicagoan straight 8 films made for straight 8 2018 which is open for entry now here
