It’s October and Super 8 is back in season with Home Movie Day and Global Super 8 Day events taking place across the globe.

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the world’s most famous small gauge film, Cambridge Super Cambridge Super 8 Group cordially invite you to Attack of the Fifty Foot Noodles! A bite-sized weekend of sizzling Super 8 delights and 8mm movie morsels in collaboration with Kings Lynn Film Festival.

Set in the historic coastal town of Kings Lynn in Norfolk, the Kings Lynn Film Festival is the newest addition to the region’s film calendar. The gastronomically themed inaugural event will feature screenings, workshops and pop-up events in venues across the market town.

The festival kicks off at Kings Lynn Town Hall on Friday 2nd October with Colour Comes to the Movies – a special event recreating the cinematograph of 100 years ago. To coincide with this unique show, Cambridge Super 8 Group in collaboration with Loose Spikes will be driving around town in a souped-up cine car culminating in a pop-up pavement cinema.

Cambridge Super 8 Group will be transforming Greyfriars Art Space into a pop-up gallery exhibition and micro-cinema featuring a  showreel (Programme here) of food-related Super 8 films by international filmmakers, hand-picked from the Cambridge International Super 8mm Film Festival archive.

Our cine chef’s special consists of a roulade of reels all hand cooked by the culinary Queen of Super 8 herself, Dagie Brundert.

For dessert gallery visitors will be able to sample special Super 8 biscuits, hand-baked by award-winning artist and Michelin-starred movie-baker, Colin Dewar.

Cambridge Super 8’s Tony Clarke will curate a pop-up exhibition of 8mm paraphernalia complete with a wall-mounted graphic panel display tracing the history of Super 8.

In the lead-up to Home Movie Day on October 17th 2015, Cambridge Super 8 Group is calling for local people to bring in their home movies on Standard 8mm, Super 8mm and 16mm for advice on screening, telecine (digital conversion) and film preservation.

So come along! It will be as instant as freeze dried coffee… and as unpredictable as a Super 8 soufflé!

And don’t forget! Look out for the kino art car on Friday 2nd October – somewhere in Kings Lynn – around 7pm!

Super 8 Cycling Challenge – Still 2 weeks to take part

20 teams will be given one cartridge of Super 8 film (3 min.). The challenge is open to everybody, from any country but please pre-register, we will contact you thereafter.

Each contestant will have a few weeks to make a 3 minute film using a Super 8 camera around one of the following themes: the Tour de France race, cycling or bicycles. 

People can be as creative as they want around the themes.  The Cambridge Super 8 will also give technical advice and lend movie cameras to newcomers. You just have to make the film.

The film will have to be shot using the Straight8 rules (no editing, shot in sequence, the filmmakers don’t see the results until the public screening). More about the challenge can be read here:

The films will be sent unprocessed to us. The filmmakers and the audience will then discover at the same time the end results in Cambridge during the Tour de France stage Cambridge to London on the 7th of July. We still have some cartridges so contact us if you want to take part  Full details of the challenge can be found here.
