For those of you who aren’t familiar with Straight 8, they are a super 8 film competition that operates in connection to the Cannes film festival. We got to know who they are through one of our team members applying for other work and everyone at Straight 8 seemed super interesting, so we couldn’t wait to interview them for this blog segment. I spoke to Ed who runs the competition and here’s what he had to say.

What happens when you bring together a group of twenty-something year old creatives and ask them to run an event for Margate Bookie's literary festival in 2021? 

Lockdown has bought many challenges and the creative industry has been hit hard. For young people who are just trying to get established in the arts it's been a particularly tough struggle. This is why it became so important for us all to get involved in something creative during lockdown. We needed to be a part of something. Margate Bookie is giving us a chance to do this and gain something extra for the CV, to get us to where we want to be when this all blows over.

When I was seventeen years old, I moved away from home to go to university in Victoria, British Columbia. Like most students in their first year, I was young and naïve, with next to nothing in terms of life experience. The shift from adolescence to adulthood involves considerable turbulence, both internal and external, and I was right in the eye of that storm. But I had no idea what was going on.

One evening, a dear friend of my family’s invited me to have dinner with her. This woman was a friend of my parents, and had known me from infancy. My guess is that she had decided that, as I was far from home, it might be an idea to check in on me. She was a practising nurse and visual artist.
