Despite the attrocities they were responsible for, many of the people and places are unknown to the locals or to most Austrians and there is now no trace. Undeterred the activists dress up and make immaginative, colourful actions at each location. The film is in German, but one of the participants will be available to answer questions afterwards.

    19h : Project 8

The Project8 Film Collective is a group of small-format filmmakers who share skills of DIY and hand-made filmmaking in the interest of developing a diverse community of local independent filmmakers in Vancouver. Every year, the Project8 Film Collective runs a free mentorship program for people who are interested in learning how to make a super8 film, but have limited access to resources to do so – Super8 Boot Camp.
This screening represents work made by participants of the Boot Camp, the collective members, and work that’s been screened at our annual festival.

In the spirit of DIY, where one’s own voice can be the ultimate in self-expression, personal and auto-biographical works emerge with a wail of creative freedom, unique and bizarre works rearrange conformity to overthrow oppression, and those just beautiful in their hand-touch sensibility nurtures and destroys the medium.
