Chicago 8: Small Guage Film Festival

 Chicago 8 is a small gauge film festival that is dedicated to exhibiting experimental works on Super 8mm, Regular 8mm, Single 8mm, & Double 8mm film.

The Chicago 8 Fest was created to celebrate small gauge filmmaking, to offer a unique event for S8 filmmakers to exhibit their work in its original format, and for viewers to experience the joy and rarity of seeing S8mm films.

Our goal is to keep small gauge filmmaking alive, to encourage further activity in this format, and to provide an opportunity for these rare gems to be seen by the Chicago community. We realize how delicate and impermanent S8mm & small gauge filmmaking is, now more than ever. We feel it is of upmost importance to share these films with you and along the way we hope to encourage, inspire, and support those who bravely continue to work in these small formats.  LINK
