Presented by APA and in association with Creature of London, Kodak, Cinelab London, elevenfiftyfive and ourscreen, the straight 8 industry shootout is a global industry battle - a company-to-company showdown - to produce the best film on one un-edited Super 8 cartridge.
ALL of the films - good, bad or ugly - will be screened for the very first time ever, even to their makers, at Cinema Les Arcades in Cannes on Thursday June 23rd - it’s raw, it’s pure. it’s legendary, it’s scary.
Audience vote will decide the winner and the proceeds will go to the winning company’s charity of choice.
Only 25 places are available and each film must be an official company entry - companies must be working in the advertising industry or have a link to the festival in June. The entry fee - to form the charity pot - is £350 per company.
There is no creative brief. All cameras, crews, props, locations and ideas must be sourced by entering companies.
Entry opens on April 26th 8pm UK time - on a first come first served basis. Make sure you pre-register by Monday, April 25th at straight8.net/shootout. There are only 25 company places available, so be sure to enter for a chance to compete with the likes of adam&eveDDB, BBH, Partizan, MPC, Rock Hound, Great Guns, Chief, Rothco Dublin & Mad Cowview more - Awards and Events
