You probably know them well, those grainy bits of footage that immediately give you that nostalgic vibe: that's Super8-mm film. Super 8 was released in 1965 and heralded as the new film format for home video. Of course we've all moved on since then, but many enthusiasts, (amateur) filmmakers and specialized festivals throughout the world prove that the medium is still alive and well, and even growing in popularity. Interesting fact is that one of the world's few Super8 labs can be found in The Hague...
...the Super 8 Reversal Lab. All the more reason for launching Super 8 mm film events in Cinecity The Hague… Shoot 8!
