Straight 8 Shootout Launch Event

Posted in Events, News, tagged with Events, on March 15, 2022

Straight 8 shootout is heading back to Cannes for 2022!

Creative companies anywhere are invited to compete by making a short film, editing entirely in-camera on just one roll of super 8 films. Every shot must be taken in story order, with no opportunity for re-takes or post-production. The first time anyone will see even their own work – no matter how, or even if, it comes out – is at straight 8’s Cannes cinema premiere on Friday, June 24th. It’ll be the first in-person shootout event for over two years, packed with an audience of peers, competitors, and all lovers of moving images.

In London? 

Please join us for the straight 8 shootout 2022 launch event on March 24th at the Prince Charles Cinema, at 6.15 pm. Get inspired with the first-ever big-screen showing of the six winning films from the two lockdown shootouts, followed by a panel with last edition’s Gold winners, Caviar – who have already committed to defending their title for 2022. Each ticket includes a drink token for the post-event drinks at a nearby venue.
