Find out which film is a cut above

Dozens have films have been screened at WNDX Festival of Moving Image during its eight-year-history.

But hundreds of movies have actually been created under the festival's auspices, thanks to the One Take Super 8 Event, an annual competition in which filmmakers of varying degrees of experience answer this challenge: Shoot a three-minute, 20-second Super-8 film in one take, with no cuts and no splices.

Each registered filmmaker was given a cartridge of Super 8 film and was obliged to keep the film intact, editing in camera, to be submitted to the competition for processing. (An audio soundtrack can be submitted to run with the film, but some are just run silent.)

Generally, the filmmakers will be seeing the films for the first time with the rest of the audience, so surprises and happy accidents are a part of the event.

This year, a total of 28 films have been submitted.

The WNDX festival continues until Sunday. For more on the fest, go to www.wndx.org.
