2024 United States Super 8 Film + Digital Video Festival Award Winners
 

We had a very nice 36th Annual United States Super 8 Film + DV Festival over the last two days although the in-person screening on Saturday was cancelled due to a major snowstorm that hit Central Jersey. Luckily folks could still see the program online. Attendance was good and it looks like we will break even financially which is important for us to keep running this Festival. Many thanks to Phil and Rhonda Vigeant as well as Jaclyn Melo of Pro 8mm and Sara Leavitt at Icarus Films/OVID for sponsoring our Festival again and providing the prizes for the Best of Festival winners. Without further ado here are the Award Winners of the 36th Annual Festival:

Third Edition of "Born in the U.S.A." to Be Released in March
 

Pioneering the field of Springsteen scholarship when it first appeared in 1997, Born in the U.S.A. remains one of the definitive studies of Springsteen's work and its impact on American culture. Moving beyond journalistic and biographical approaches, Jim Cullen situates the artist in a wider historical canvas that stretches from the Puritans to Barack Obama, showing how he has absorbed, refracted, and revitalized American mythology, including the American Dream, the work ethic, and the long quest for racial justice. Exploring difficult questions about Springsteen's politics, he finds a man committed to both democratic and republican principles, as well as a patriot dedicated to revealing the lapses of a country he loves.
