straight 8 Shootout is Heading Back to Cannes for '22

straight 8’s global analogue filmmaking showdown for companies: ‘straight 8 shootout’ is heading back to Cannes for 2022.

London friends - Please join us for the launch event on March 24th at the Prince Charles Cinema, at 6.15pm. Ticket link:

Get inspired at the first ever cinema outing for the six winning films from the two lockdown shootouts, followed by a panel with last edition’s Gold winners, Caviar - who have already committed to defend their title for 2022. Each ticket includes a drink token for the post-event drinks at a nearby venue.

Entering companies are invited to compete for charity by making a short film, editing entirely in-camera on just one roll of super 8 film. The first time anyone sees even their own work - no matter how it comes out - will be at the packed cinema premiere.

After two years of livestream premieres, we return to this exciting premiere event at Cinema Les Arcades, Cannes on Friday June 24th.

The creative brief? Open. After two years of themes we’re reverting to our age old challenge: which is simply, what do you want to do with 2.5 minutes of the silver screen at a beautiful cinema full of colleagues, competitors and friends?

Film must be made by end of May, and only 20 companies can compete so sign up asap to secure a place in this competition, only at:
