Mission / description In response to the growing trend to video and digital technology, the CSIF created the $100 Film Festival in 1992. Intended as a showcase for film as an affordable and exciting medium, the popularity of the festival has grown year after year. The first year showcased eight short films on Super 8mm and the name sprung from the challenge to local artists to shoot a short film on four rolls of Super 8 – which tallied to the cost of $100 for film and processing. In following years, the festival dropped the budgetary limit and allowed 16mm film into the festival, which shifted the focus of the festival from low-budget to the quality of the small-format film medium. The festival is now an international celebration of celluloid. It does not charge entry fees, and pays artist honourariums for any selected works in addition to cash prizes for competition. full text less text
