2013 United States Super 8 Film + Digital Video Festival – Part 3

Now in its 25th year, the United States Super 8mm Film + Digital Video Festival is the largest and longest running juried Super 8mm film and digital video festival 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.  The 25th annual United States Super 8mm Film + Digital Video Festival will be held on February 15-17, 2013 at Voorhees Hall #105, beginning each evening at 7 PM, on the College Avenue Campus of Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey.  The Festival will include a different program each evening. 

All of the submitted works were screened by a panel of fifteen jurors comprised of media professionals, journalists, students, interns, and film scholars. The panel included: Nia Allen-Lee, Yasmeen Ali, Alexandra Chin, Erika Conty, Ryan Dembek, Rugved Deshpande, Daniel Fisher, Irene Fizer, Victory Furniture, Allyson Hensley, Albert Nigrin, Matt Riddle, Johanna Ruiz, Allie Steiger, and Andrew Zrebiec. The nineteen finalist works were selected from over 166 works submitted by filmmakers from around the world. In addition, the jurors chose the Prize Winners in conjunction with the Festival Director.  During the three days of the festival, audience members will participate in the judging process by voting for their favorite works via the "Audience Choice Prize." All of the award-winners will be publicly announced after the closing-night screenings on Sunday, February 17, 2013. In addition, there will be special tribute programs for two Super 8 filmmakers -- Sanjiban Sellew and Anne Robertson -- who won many awards at our Festival.  We join their families and friends in mourning their untimely passing as we celebrate their remarkable work.
