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

enter / come see

straight 8 2018 is now closed but the exciting part is yet to come

once again we asked anyone anywhere: if you have a straight 8 in you we want to see it

and films winged their way to us from around the globe

now we are at the point where the chemicals at cinelab london are developing and fixing your magic on celluloid so that light can be shone through it and the world can see your creations.  8 of those creations will be seen at cannes film festival...

//// YES. CANNES FILM FESTIVAL - MAY 14TH 20:30H - CINEMA OLYMPIA - ON A HUGE SCREEN //// SO SAVE THE DATE ////

selections will be announced third week in april

meet our jury and partners

to find out more about how our global annual competition works, see the 2018 entry page archive here

straight 8 is open to anyone anywhere. we don't even mention diversity. never have. never needed to. oops - just did
