Ed Sayers, director, and founder of straight 8, said: “The second year of the straight 8 Industry Shootout was a blast, again. If you missed it, or if you didn’t, be sure to join us and the filmmakers and soak up the raw creativity before you start your day.”

straight 8 began in 1999 when director, Ed Sayers, asked friends to have a go at making a short film on one cartridge of Super 8 each - with no waste, at a 1:1 shooting ratio. The films were screened in London’s West End to a packed audience, projecting off Super 8 with the audio playing from cassettes.

From 2003-2012 straight 8 screened at Cannes Film Festival every year, received 100-200 entries for each annual competition and has enjoyed stints on Channel 4 broadcast TV.

In 2016, after a three-year hiatus, straight 8 re-launched with new verve including a stellar jury.

straight 8 agency shootout in London was held in 2003 and 2005 at BAFTA and Curzon Mayfair respectively. The straight 8 industry shootout is an evolution of that and was launched at Cannes advertising festival in 2016.
