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: http://www.straight8.net

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.
