straight 8 Industry Shootout Comes to London! | 6th July, Regent Street Cinema

Posted in Events, tagged with Cannes, straight8, on June 24, 2018

This year’s straight 8 industry shootout was as popular as ever with a great attendance from Cannes festival goers and a super high standard of work, and if you missed the screening in Cannes the reel will soon be showing in London!

22 companies took on the challenge of creating a film from scratch on a single cartridge of super 8 film. All competing for charity, pride and honour.

Once the films were screened (for the very first time) each entered company voted for Gold, Silver & Bronze but not for their own film. The audience volume after the films was scientifically measured and the audience award was for the film with the loudest reaction (aside from the trophy-winning films).
The winners were:

GOLD 
I Am Justin Waite – Iris Worldwide
£1000 goes to WaterAid

SILVER
Répetez S’il-Vous-Plait – The Producers Brisbane (Australia)
£500 goes to Médecins Sans Frontières

BRONZE
In Transit – 18 Feet & Rising (UK)
£250 goes to Stonewall

AUDIENCE AWARD
If – Skin and Bones (Canada)
