8th ANNUAL FESTIVAL
Friday, January 30 to Sunday, February 1
SPK Polish Combatants' Hall
"a little festival for small films"
The 8 fest returns to Toronto for its eighth year for three nights of screenings and live performances. This year will find the festival back at last year’s wonderful venue: the SPK Polish Combatants' Hall (206 Beverley, at Cecil Street, two blocks south of College) The 8 fest is North America's longest running festival devoted to all forms of small-gauge film, including Super 8, 8mm, 9.5 and loops, shown in their original formats. The 8 fest showcases the 70+ history of small gauge film - from contemporary artists' work in the form, to its wider cultural use in home movies, instructional loops and beyond.
This year's edition of the 8 fest consists of eight programmes, one Super 8 workshop, and one artist's talk. Also, the eighth edition of the 8 fest features a zoetrope installation co-presented by the Images Festival!
