Established in 2006 by Shane Eason, the 1:1 Super 8 Cinema Soirée is an annual South Florida event celebrating the use of super 8 film, but with a twist: none of the films are viewed by the filmmakers before the screening. Participants are not allowed to preview or edit their films. No matter what imperfections, happy accidents, or planned technical attributes occur. What’s shot in-camera is what’s shown. There is no opportunity to make changes. Each participant gets one chance, one reel, and one take, premiering the films at a one night collective screening. More on Facebook.
