straight 8

straight up filmmaking since 1999

one super 8 cartridge no editing

follow us to be the first to hear about straight 8 2017

we help people get films out of their heads and onto a screen

if you have a straight 8 in you

we want to see it

2016 results

we don't do outright winners.  winning is seeing your film for the first time together with the audience - especially at cannes film festival

below you can see who made which films and where they screened for straight 8 2016 ...and you can watch the films themselves

many thanks to our stellar jury who in their own words 'had an intense and inspiring jury session' and to all our great partners
