Now in its 33rd 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. We invite you to discover cutting-edge works created by passionate filmmakers with these small-gauge media formats. The 33rd annual United States Super 8mm Film & Digital Video Festival will be held virtually February 20+21, 2021. The Festival will include a different program each evening.

Ominous cinegrams of Albrecht Dürer’s Melencolia print intercut, like cascading scythes, with depictions of a woman in a field, evoking repetitions that exist in harvest rituals, as well as in gestures of madness. Specters of familial anxieties creep into this loose take on the myth of Południca (noonwraith or Lady Midday), a Slavic harvest spirit that could cause madness in those who wandered the fields alone.
