Amateur film

Sony Mavica FD 5.

Amateur film is the low-budget hobbyist art of film practiced for passion and enjoyment and not for business purposes.

Organizations

The international organization for amateur film makers is UNICA (festivals and conventions. There are several amateur film festivals held annually in the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Creation

Amateur films were usually shot on 16 mm film or on 8 mm film (either Double-8 or Super-8) until the advent of cheap video cameras or digital equipment. The advent of digital video and computer based editing programs greatly expanded the technical quality achievable by the amateur and low-budget filmmaker. Amateur video has become the choice for the low-budget filmmaker and has boomed into a very watched and even produced industry with the use of VHS and digital video camcorders.
