Opportunities for emerging filmmakers

Crazy 8s is the single best way in BC to launch your career
Zach Lipovsky, Crazy8s alumni

Crazy8s is an 8-day film making challenge that provides funding and support to emerging filmmakers to help them produce a short film. Six pitch winners receive $1,000 and a production package provided by sponsors in the local production community with everything they need to make their short film in just 8 days.

Finished films are screened at a gala event that’s a hot ticket amongst the who’s who of the Vancouver film industry. Since 1999, Crazy8s has become THE place to discover new talent, provide valuable on set training, and give opportunities for filmmakers to create work that can be used to launch their careers in the film industry!

Crazy8s is run by the Crazy8s Film Society, a not-for-profit society. It was created to foster support for emerging filmmakers who have little or no access to funding for short films. More information visit
