Now in its 29th year, the United States Super 8mm Film & Digital Video Festival is the largest and longest running juried festival of its kind in North America. The festival encourages any genre (including animation, documentary, personal, narrative, and experimental) made on Super 8mm/8mm film, Hi 8mm/8mm, or digital video. The 29th annual United States Super 8mm Film & Digital Video Festival will be held on February 18+19, 2017 at Voorhees Hall #105, beginning each evening at 7 PM, on the College Avenue Campus of Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey.  The Festival will include a different program each evening, and will also include three films that won prizes at this festival in previous years. 

All of the submitted works were screened by a panel of jurors comprised of media professionals, journalists, students, and film scholars. The nine finalist works were selected from works submitted by filmmakers from the United States and around the world. In addition, the jurors chose the winning works in conjunction with the Festival Director.  During the two days of the festival, audience members will also participate in the judging process by voting for their favorite work via the "Audience Choice Prize." All of the award-winners will be publicly announced after the closing-night screenings on Sunday, February 19, 2017.

Here is the line-up for Sunday, February 19:

Pick -
Benjamin Hayden (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) It is 1916.  In the basement of a haunted hotel, a voyeur stalks a young damsel. Shot on location in the Riverside Hotel in Calgary, where an actual riot involving over 1,500 men took place, the film embodies the violent energy of a dark historical moment in the city’s past.  2010; 12 min. Best of the 2011 United States Super 8 Film Festival

Moon Hoax Now
Jet Wintzer (Old Bridge, New Jersey) Jet Wintzer launches into the Apollo moon-hoax conspiracy with new research mined from an exhaustive exploration of official NASA broadcasts and public records. More than just an attack on the official story, the film offers an irreverent, new appraisal of the moon-landing mission as one of the greatest works of conceptual art ever made. Featuring esoteric clips from the live TV footage, gorgeous 16mm film, stunning hi- definition photographs and technical manuals soundtracked to an original trance-like score, Moon Hoax Now takes the viewer on a voyeuristic voyage behind the vast dazzling lunar curtain. 2015; 55 min.
