Film is Fabulous!
Duration: 360 mins
The Film is Fabulous! team is working closely with De Montfort University's Cinema and Television History Institute (CATHI) to preserve film treasures for future generations. Their aim is to protect vulnerable film collections held privately in the United Kingdom, by raising awareness of the issues within the film collecting community.
Film is Fabulous! will feature:
- an exclusive screening of filmmaker Rob Murphy’s documentary about the change from celluloid to digital cinema and the loss of film treasures, entitled Splice Here: A Projected Odyssey;
- special guests from film and television, with expert knowledge of film collections and preservation;
- discussions on the archiving of film, missing television episodes and digital cinema projection;
- screenings of 35mm and Super 8 films, including the largest projected image of Super 8 in Britain;
- film dealers offering a wide selection of formats and titles, plus a ‘bring & buy’ table for attendees.
