Super Open Super 8 Studio Mondays
June 17, 2019 - July 29, 2019

Struts Gallery will host informal workshops every Monday leading up to the Super 8 Hotel Film Festival starting on June 17th. Learn to use a super 8 camera, thread a projector, splice and process film, or use the equipment and space independently.

Camera rentals and tutorials can be scheduled any time. Get your films shot by the end of June if you plan on sending your film to a lab for processing.

Participation costs $40 for black & white super 8 film, $26 for lab processing, $20 for high contrast 16mm film, or some other less convenient but potentially free option. Email Todd Fraser at to book, sign up, or learn more!


Super 8 Hotel Film Festival
July 2019

Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre is pleased to announce the 20th Annual Super 8 Hotel Film Festival: An opportunity for you to shoot your very own short film and present it on the big screen.

If you would like to participate in this year’s festival, here’s what you need to know:

  1. Contact Gallery – Email us at or phone 536-1211 to sign up and order film. No deadline to register but film supplies are limited so let us know as soon as possible.
  2. Shoot Film – Participants will have access to Super 8 cameras, lights, tripods, and rigging as well as technical assistance.
  3. Process Film – Black & White film can be hand-processed at Struts & Faucet or sent to a film lab for processing at $26 per cartridge. The deadline for lab processing of film is July 1st.
  4. Film Screening – This fabulous event will take place in late July.


Black & white film is $40 per cartridge

Lab processing cost is an additional $26 per roll
*it’s also possible to process the film yourself, pay $20 for 16mm film instead of Super 8, or learn to make your own emulsion! Email Todd Fraser at to learn more about any of these options. 

At the beginning of June Struts & Faucet will begin to host a series of weekly workshops leading up the Super 8 Hotel Film Festival screening. These will range from specific skill development workshops to informal darkroom hours. They may include hand processing film, splicing, digitizing, making prints or blow ups, animating on film, making motion picture cyanotype film, and handmade emulsions!
