RPS 19 Show Report - Super 8 Film Night

Our Super 8 film night last Saturday evening was great. We watched a total of 17 short films ranging in length from about 2 minutes to 20 minutes. The program was divided into two half with the first half consisting of a number of Super 8 films I've found online. After a brief intermission we screened the second half of the program which featured shorts from the 2010 Cambridge International Super 8 Film Festival. Overall the response was good and I think people really enjoyed most (if not all) of the films.

The next show - our 20th - will have to be a good one. I'm thinking about what to do. Ideas?

Super 8 Film Night! At Silo Art Space - Rocktown - RPS#19

The films vary widely in terms of genre; foreign, quirky, dark, sentimental, experimental...some arre just plain strange. Some are black and white, some color - appearance and... mood all differ. They all have on thing in common - all were shot in the Super 8 film format.

This will be the FIRST showing of its type for Renegade and will take place indoors. Yes, indoors at Rocktown, in our Silo Art Space area.

Hope you all can be there. We'll do our best to accommodate.

The show will begin approximately 8:30 pm.
A personal note from Aaron:
