Cinema Futures

Directing: Michael Palm


Cinema Futures is a multilayered cinematic essay examining the future of the cinema and of film in the age of digital motion pictures. The experience of viewing a film at the cinema coexists alongside the diversity of digital formats, with the spectrum ranging from enormous IMAX screens to the ephemeral reception of film on a smart phone. In an age where analog celluloid strips are rapidly disappearing, replaced by new digital production methods and a broad-based digitization of the cinematic and television landscape, the massive loss of audiovisual memory seems to loom large. What will the cinematic cultures of the future look like? Are the world's film archives on the brink of a dark age? Is film dying out or merely evolving?
