The onset of digital and the demise of film means that the technical times are a-changing for MIFF; there’s been a huge shift away from 35mm prints and towards DCP (or Digital Cinema Packages, as those people up in the projection booth would say) over the last year. The images on the screen are going to look as good as, if not better than, ever, but there's a whole different way to how we get them there, and both opportunities and challenges for the festival and filmmakers.
Learn more about the debate around the future of film vs digital at MIFF 2012: we’re screening Side by Side, in which everyone from Lynch to Lucas discuss the future of filmmaking, as well as Final Reel: The End of Film?, a Talking Pictures panel asking the big questions of revered Australian directors, cinematographers, editors and exhibitors about the changing ways we make and watch movies, and what's at stake.
