GS8D2021 is postponed to the GS8D2025

Three years from today, 11 October, Global Super8 Day 2025 will take place worldwide! Luckily, there is still enough time to make your own S8 film or plan an S8 event for GS8D2025. Both need preparation.
After all, GS8D has been organised from Switzerland since 2000. Now, for the first time also with its own address, since January 2022 in the Filmhaus Basel. We are looking forward to receiving your analogue postcards and will gladly print even new stickers if necessary… Thank you all so much!
We have invited ourselves, but are kindly tolerated by the festival, thanks so much. It is the only A-festival that accepts Super8 unaltered! Therefore, we have prepared ourselves with new material. Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen here we come! The 68th festival edetion starts online on 30 April and live from 4 – 9 May 2022. We will be there from 5 – 8 May. Who eles? We are happy to meet you!The templates from the flyer (A6) and poster (A3) are free to download in the press online gallery:

Declaration GS8D2025

After deep discussion, we have now decided to postpone GS8D2021 again, now to 2025. In June 2020, we had high hopes that Covid-19 could end in 2021. While the Covid-19 situation has indeed recently become much more relaxed in parts of the world, it remains catastrophic in others. We want to show solidarity and responsibility. No one should feel excluded from GS8D. A Global Super8 Day should have at least equal conditions worldwide. We know from some Super8 friends that they are planning S8 events and S8 festivals in 2021. Of course, we are all very happy about that. That’s why we are opening our event page for all Super8 events, no matter when, no matter where. We are also declaring each second Saturday in October as “little GS8D’s”. Whoever is in a position to plan and hold GS8D events in the years 2021 – 2024, please do so. The GS8D lives on your initiative! However, the aim is to celebrate a truly worldwide GS8D2025 in a dignified, solidary and responsible manner. Then it really will be: 25 years of Global Super8 Day and 60 years Super8! Thank you for your understanding! Walk on!

GS8D2020 is postponed to 9th october 2021

We really hope for a better sitiuation worldwide in 2021 and
looking forward for many GS8D2021-Events made by you.

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 We ask for patience for the answer as a precaution. Thank you

The world is there – and you? Le monde est là – et vous ? El mundo está ahí, ¿y tú? Die Welt ist dabei – und Du? Мир там, а ты? 世界はここにあります – そしてあなた?
