I’m feeling honored that my short film INTO THE REALM OF THE NIGHT has been officially selected to run at the 14th edition of the8fest in Toronto, Canada, July 28–30, 2023.
the8fest is a festival for anyone using small-gauge to create rough little gems on film. A unique Toronto-based film festival that presents all forms of small-gauge film: 8mm, Super 8 and 9.5mm, as well as works in installation, loops, personal, handmade, experimental, animations, diaries, essays, collage, cut-ups, performance/film, music/film and ‘proto-cinema devices’ like zoetropes.
the8fest presents films from Toronto, across Canada and from small-gauge creators and communities around the world. Showcasing the 70+ year history of small-gauge film – from artists’ work in the form since the 1950’s and 60’s, to it’s wider cultural use in home movies, instructional loops and beyond – the 8fest provides a forum for filmmakers who want to show their work on small-gauge and for people who want to see this work in its original formats. the8fest is committed to keeping the exhibition of small-gauge film a viable presentation medium. Our first annual festival was held in February 2007.
