3 – Of Categories
• SUPER 8 MOVIE – SINGLE TAKE (WORKSHOP)

The Short 8 will promote on September 7 and 8, 2019, in the city of Curitiba / PR, the workshop of cinema in super 8. In it, participants will receive all historical and technical instructions about super 8, as well as guidelines for handling cameras and movies. They will also receive a super 8 film cartridge and have a camera available to film a team of five. Registration will take place from August 7th to 31st, 2019 exclusively through the website www.curta8.com.br. This year, as the festival is held independently and has no sponsors, a fee of R$ 30,00 will be charged per each participant only to cover the costs of developing the films. The scripts/ideas will be selected by the Short 8 organization, and during the workshop, participants will choose which film to participate in. The workshop will have 40 vacancies, which will be filled in order of registration. Participants will receive confirmation by e-mail, as well as having their names published on the festival website by September 4, 2019 After the workshop, participants will have two weeks to produce their films. Each team of five should use a single super 8 film cartridge, which will be provided by the festival. The film will have to be edited in the camera itself, in the act of filming, being allowed the use of any photographic effect manipulated during the exposure. However, the film should not be revealed by the director. After filming, the cartridge and camcorder must be delivered by hand or sent to the organization’s address (see item 4) by September 25, 2019. Only envelopes / packages stating the date of posting by September 25, 2019. Upon receipt of the cartridge, the Short 8 organization will be responsible for sending it to the lab and reserves the right to project or disclose the revealed films, whatever their results (the submitted filmmakers or guests already accept these terms and declare that their films can be projected even without any revealed image). We reiterate that the organization of Short 8 is solely responsible for directing the filmed material to a specialized laboratory to reveal the film, not being responsible for errors in photometry or any other problems in the manipulation of the film, which are the sole responsibility of the participants. The outcome of the movies is always a surprise to both the audience and the filmmakers who watch the film for the first time during the festival. The soundtrack of the film is also under the responsibility of the filmmakers, who may mount the track on a CD or MP3 to be played along with the projection, or may use live sound features such as voiceovers, musical instruments, etc., being these at the discretion of the filmmakers at the screening. In the case of performing instruments, the festival organization should be consulted beforehand to ensure available resources such as cables, amplifiers, microphones, etc.

• SUPER 8 MOVIE – SINGLE TAKE (INDEPENDENT)

If the application is approved, the director will have until September 25, 2019 to shoot his film and send the filmed cartridge to the festival (without revealing). The participant may use a single super 8 film cartridge, which must be of reversible type. The film will have to be edited in the camera itself, in the act of filming, being allowed to use any photographic effects manipulated during the exhibition (some tips), but the film should not be revealed by the director. After shooting, the cartridge will need to be shipped to the organization’s address (see item 4). Purchase of the cartridge is the sole responsibility of the director – this year, because the festival is independent and has no incentives, a fee of R$ 150,00 will be charged for each film selected, to cover the costs of developing them. Once submitted to the festival organization (dated September 25, 2019), the Short 8 organization will be responsible for submitting the film to the lab, reserving the right to project or disclose the revealed films, whatever they may be are your results (subscribers or guests already accept these terms and declare themselves aware that their films can be projected even without any revealed images). We reiterate that the organization of Short 8 will only be responsible for forwarding the filmed material to a specialized laboratory to reveal the film, not being responsible for photometric errors or any other problems in the manipulation of the film, which are the sole responsibility of the participant. Director and audience will watch the movie for the first time during the festival days. The soundtrack of the film is also the responsibility of the director, who can mount the track on a CD or MP3 to be played along with the projection or can use live sound features such as voiceovers, musical instruments, etc., these being the director’s discretion at the time of the screening.
