STARTED IN 2015, DV8 WAS BORN OUT OF AN ATTITUDE OF RESISTANCE AGAINST THE EGREGIOUSLY HIGH-BUDGET FILMS SATURATING THE INDUSTRY.

FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS, WE'VE CELEBRATED AND SUPPORTED THE WORK OF FILMMAKERS AND ARTISTS THROUGH OUR 48 HOUR, MINIDV AND SUPER 8 FILM FESTIVAL AND OTHER DIY FILM EVENTS.

THIS YEAR, WE HOPE TO CONTINUE OUR MISSION BY EXPANDING PROGRAMMING IN AN EFFORT TO FURTHER GIVE A PLATFORM TO BURGEONING ARTISTS, FILMMAKERS AND CREATIVES.

 
The films screened at this year’s festival prove how important it is to return to the childhood feeling of wanting to make something and then just doing it: immediately, crudely, and honestly.
