Son who has worked successfully in film industry since 1986 just migrated those eight and super eight mm home movies to blu ray and sent a blu ray/DVD Player. I had had the films done on VHS but kept the film. (Yes, I am a librarian and we keep things.) Says film is still the best capture but not so widely accessible.
Print on paper but good paper and serious ink (not ink jet) are necessary for any hope of print on paper survival.
Best advice for your personal archives is migrate formats. Next best is to keep the format and the format player. Yes, I have an 8 mm projector.
