MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The 26th Annual United States Super 8mm Film + Digital Video Festival will be held February 14-16, 2014 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 8mm/8mm film or Digital video or 8mm video formats.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
All works will be screened by a panel of judges who will award over $3000 in prizes. Last year's festival audiences viewed 19 finalist works out of 166 entries from throughout the world over three evenings. The Festival takes as its mandate the spreading of the 8mm and Digital word. For more information go to www.njfilmfest.com or call us at 848-932-8482!

Toward that end, the Rutgers Film Co-op/NJMAC has sponsored ten touring programs culled from Super 8 Festival prize winners for the past 25 years. The selections of the U.S. Super 8 Film/Video Festival Touring Program have been screened at media art 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; and many others.
