From May 14th, for 48 hours only, you will be able to see the eight straight 8 films selected from over 100 entries to play at Cannes Film Festival 2018 by a stellar jury, including Academy and BAFTA Award winning writer-director Asif Kapadia.
For the first time, straight 8 is making the eight Cannes finalist films available to stream for a limited period, right after the global premiere in Cannes.
straight 8 invites anyone anywhere to make a short film on one cartridge of Super 8mm cine film lasting up to 3 minutes 20 seconds. Shoot in story order, no re-takes, no edit, grade, post-production. Your original soundtrack is made and submitted blind and the first time you see your film is with the audience at its premiere.
straight 8 helps people get films out of their head and onto a screen. The competition is open to anyone anywhere. If you have a straight 8 in you they want to see it.
