Reprising the popular Super 8 Rides Again program from last year at Chicago Filmmakers, we’ve invited 23 Chicago-area image makers to shoot a roll of Super 8 film and have it premier at the show. All editing will be done in-camera, and no one will be allowed to see their work prior to the screening. We want to thank Kodak and Dwayne’s Photo Service for donating film and processing.

Filmmakers include: Xan Aranda, Ben Balcom,Jeremy Bessoff, Adebukola Bodunrin, Lilli Carre,Thom Comerford, Mary Helena Clark, Carolyn Faber, Lori Felker, Scott Foley, Amir George, Jason Halprin, Lyra Hill, Karen Johannesen, Kent Lambert, Jared Larson, JB Mabe, Kate Raney, Jerzy Rose, Bill Stamets, Alexander Stewart, Ted Tremper, Chi Jang Yin.
