Through the Looking Glass: Super-8 Film Festival consists of screenings of 20 locally made Super-8 films that explore fantastical otherworlds. The films run no longer than four minutes each and contain less than four splices. Most editing was done in-camera, and many of the soundtracks are original compositions made collaboratively by filmmakers and musicians. The Sunday screening will also include a film installation by local filmmaker Aaron Valdez; the Monday screening will include installations by Cinemaker Managing Director Jodie Keeling and Technical Assistant Andrew Busti.
