Shoot some film! We dare you! Included in the cost of your registration you’ll get: a three-hour workshop on shooting super8; one roll of super8 film (one only! It’s a challenge!); a weekend rental of a super8 camera (or use your own if you have one); FAVA pays for shipping to the lab, film development, and transfer of all the films to a digital file. See your masterpiece for the very first time alongside the other challenge participants at FAVA’s summer BBQ. Crank up your nerve and come have some fun shooting film.
