Widescreen Weekend 2015

November 1, 2015 at 12:55 (Festivals, Film) ()


I didn’t make it to much of the Widescreen Weekend this year but it was great to get another chance to see Interstellar, this time on 70mm (I still prefer the Imax version). Interstellar was followed by a talk Visual Effects for 70mm Filmmaking  by Paul Franklin, Creative Director for Double Negative.

I also attended the Keynote Speech by Douglas Trumbull on The State of Cinema. There was some really fascinating insight into the history and future of cinema and could’ve gone on for hours (in a good way) if the room didn’t have to be cleared to show 2001: A Space Odyssey. Foolishly I didn’t stay to see the film having just seen it recently at Leeds International Film Festival but I think it was a mistake to not taken the opportunity to see it in 70mm.
