GS8D2020 is postponed to 9th october 2021

Declaration GS8D2021
After detailed discussion, the GS8D2020 will be postponed to October 9, 2021, i.e. by one year. The committee would consider it unsolidary and irresponsible to call for GS8D events worldwide during this time. Even though the situation regarding Covid-19 is clearly improving in Europe, it is still very acute and catastrophic in North and South America. We know very well that both filming on Super8 and organizing GS8D events require a lot of attention, energy and time. With the decision to postpone the event by one year, we hope to achieve the same good conditions worldwide. We would like to thank everyone who has been so committed to the GS8D2020. So we are now looking forward to October 9, 2021, in order to prepare a worldwide, well-prepared celebration of the Super8 film with all of you. Thanks for your understanding!

Welcome to the website of the Global Super 8 Day 2021

Next year the 9th October 2021 we will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Global Super 8 Day and 55 years of Super 8! This year the GS8D2020 is postponed unfortunatly. The dates on the website will be changed to 9th october 2021 one by one. Even in this bad news let´s try to find something good. For example to ask local film festivals, cinemas, theaters or museums to be part of the GS8D2021. There are more than 15 month for preparations.

And we know very well that making Super8 films and also organizing GS8D events requires a lot of passion and time.

Right now we are putting everthing together and prepare as much as we can so you can plan your event more easily around the globe.

Please send inquiries to info@gs8d.info. We ask for patience for the answer as a precaution. Thank you

We would like to continue to spread the idea and the new date of the GS8D2021 early and widely. Here is the trailer of Jim and Daniel from the year 2000 for the first GS8D event in Hamburg – now with subtitles. Please feel free to share it, thx! Here you ´ll find the download-link for the trailer.

It is obvious that we do not call for GS8D events against common sense and against official orders. There are more important things at the moment! We are monitoring the situation and see when, what could be possible. Stay healthy! www.staythefuckhome.com/
Lockdown as chance for S8?
Very many people worldwide are involuntarily at home because of COVID-19 due to exit restrictions. Partly in the home office, but partly also without a job and then they renovate or clear up at home. This is now the best moment for the Super8-Generation-Treaty: this is how the long forgotten Super8 cameras are found again in the attics or in all the cellars. So: Fathers and mothers give your S8 cameras into young hands! For more information please have a look to press release S8-Generation-Treaty-Corona. Thx!
Yes, the registration form for GS8D events is ready and open. If you submit your S8 event plaese note, the GS8D2020 is due to Covid-19 suspended for now. We are very sorry, but don´t know when the world will be raedy for this. Stay tuned please! Thx! Read more here.

Please send inquiries to info@gs8d.info. We ask for patience for the answer as a precaution. Thank you 🙂
