Super Gr8 is a film festival unlike any other. Now celebrating its TENTH year, the festival has produced hundreds of short films shot entirely on the classic Super 8 film format. Each filmmaker is given just one roll of film (about 3 minutes & 20 seconds) which must be shot entirely in order, with no edits made. On the night of the screening, the filmmakers see their developed films for the first time on the big screen, along with the rest of the audience.The festival's unique limitations help to level the playing field, encouraging healthy competition and creative collaboration in our community.
For Super Gr8’s 10th year, we will be returning to the festival’s original format featuring a “Black & White Night” and a “Color Night”. Each night will have its own contained round of voting and awards. Come both nights to see each film and cast your votes in the categories of: Best Film, Best Visuals, Best Audio & Best Performance. Voting takes place at the theater at the end of each night. Awards presented afterward at each night’s Official Super Gr8 Afterparty, held at The Golden Pony in Downtown Harrisonburg.
Life is Super Gr8!
