Intermediate Workshop | October 30 - November 1 | Boston

More About the Workshop

While digital is the primary exhibition format today,  many theatres continue to screen 35mm prints.  New audiences continue to appreciate rare prints, archive films and titles from private collections, many of which are not available in a digital format.  More and more of these prints come from archives and similar institutions, and damaged prints cannot be replaced.  This makes the handling and projection of film prints critical, and training imperative.

The workshops  offer speakers and hands-on tutorials for projectionists at different levels of experience working with 35mm film prints and will focus on film preparation and projection as well as special stipulations for archival projection, and coordinating with lending institutions.  The workshops are aimed at those who have some booth experience and are looking to expand their knowledge and skills.
