I am producing the Super 8 Circus again, as part of the University of Toronto Film Festival. We are screening Friday, Feb 17, at 9pm, at Innis Town Hall. There will be about 20 super 8 films, in-camera edits, with live music by GUH. Most of the shooters this year are students, and many are newbies, but we have returning guest artist John Porter, filmmaker John Greyson and writer Maggie MacDonald. I shot my film Sunday. It was a comedy and it took 11 hours, so I am anxious to see how it came out (get it back tomorrow).

The festival itself runs Feb 14-18 and is screening all shorts from Toronto and beyond. For info go to www.uoftfilmfest.ca

Of particular note is Saturday Feb 18, 7pm show. It's the Film Board Gala and I have a two-minute abstract shutterless piece showing, called Hi Lights. For the closing reception afterwards the Super 8 Circus is staging a loop installation.

If you are in the Toronto area come and check us out (and if we've never met come and introduce yourself. I'll be the MC).

Hey Rick,

Week days I'm chained to a desk slaving over articles and interviews (including an an amazing interview with Rick Palidwor, the KING of all things Super 8) and on weekends I can be found standing in front of Loblaws with a sign that reads: WILL WRITE FOR FOOD.

One of these days I will make it into Toronto, but I'm having a bit of a problem with my lead sled dog and my igloo has a nasty leak (for all you American readers, that last bit is secret Canadian code)


Mike
now really, would you want a guy like me showing up at your Super 8 festival?

Excuses, excuses... (It's a Friday night, which is just after your lousy week and just before your lousy weekend:)

The place will be full of people like you, only with slightly better dog sleds, so you'd fit right in.

Bump (if I may) since the event is in less than two days.
