Over the last two years our work with Kodak has opened our eyes to the science and magic of celluloid. But it was only when we discovered a perfectly preserved Super 8 projector in a loft and a booming community of Cine film enthusiasts in Cornwall that an idea started hatching.
Welcome to League of Strangers x Super 8. Following our Super 8 competition (enter now!), this February we’ll be firing up Clare’s grandpa’s projector, crossing our fingers and screening a selection of winning Super 8 shorts selected by our prestigious judges, including Adam Woodward from Little White Lies and Joanna Della Ragione from Kodak.
After the films there’ll be a screening of director Mark Jenkin’s Super 8 work, a discussion hosted by the Cinematologists and plenty of time to chat process, practice and possibilities with all the filmmakers. As well as geek out over equipment of course.
So check out the competition where you can win the film stock and development for your Super 8 short (kindly sponsored by Kodak), show us your creativity and put the date in the diary (well, when we have a date, that is).
Sign up to the League of Strangers community and newsletter to find out more (February date and venue coming soon) and we’ll keep you posted.
