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!

Promotion trailer for the first Global Super 8 Day – Event in Hamburg, made by Jim Lacy & Daniel Haude, in the year 2000. The trailer was screend on 35 mm in many cinemas in Hamburg and the Thalia Theater was sold out with about 1000 enthusiastic people!

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.

Thx so much for the very good cooperation with
our Supporter Balimage and Stadtkino Basel!
the show – which took the place of the 15th cannes film festival premiere – is still available to watch for free at
Trailer and last call for straight8 2020
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!
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 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? العالم هنا – وأنت؟
