The 12th annual United States Super 8 mm Film / Video Festival will be held on February 18 - 20, 2000 at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey. The Festival encourages any genre (animation, documentary, experimental, fiction, personal, etc.), but the work must have predominantly originated on Super 8 mm film or 8 mm video. All works will be screened by a panel of judges who will award $2600 in cash and prizes. Last years festival drew a S. R. O. audience which viewed 25 prize-winning works out of 140 entries from throughout the United States and Canada.
The Festival takes as its mandate the spreading of the 8 mm word. Toward that end, the Rutgers Film Co-op / NJMAC has sponsored five touring programs culled from Super 8 Festival prize-winners for the past five years. The "Selections of the U. S. Super 8 Film / Video Festival Touring Program" has been screened at media arts centers, film festivals and universities including the 2nd World Festival of Video in Brussels, Belgium; the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York; 911 Media Arts Center in Seattle, Washington; Boston School of the Museum of Fine Arts; Hallwalls in Buffalo, New York; the Melbourne Super 8 Festival, Australia; Pittsburgh Filmmakers; the Northwest Film & Video Center / Portland Art Museum, Oregon; Utah Film & Video Center in Salt Lake City and many others.
