From Silent Screen to Digital Screen: A Century of Cinema Exhibition, Phoenix Square, De Montfort University, Leicester, 10th-11th July 2010.
The fate of 35mm as an acquisition and exhibition medium is intimately connected with questions of future-proofing, archiving, preservation, and access, which are currently at the foreground of recent debates around screen heritage in the UK. In this paper I explore the threat of digital projection to the viability of the 35mm release print, the impact of this on film stock production, and how this will affect film preservation, from a UK perspective. The paper draws on the insights garnered from the interviews I have been conducting in the course of my current practice research project documenting the impact of digital technologies on the film industry.
