Reframing the Future of Film in Mumbai
From March 30th to April 1st, Film Heritage Foundation will host Reframing the Future of Film in Mumbai, India. The event brings together filmmakers Tacita Dean and Christopher Nolan with Film Heritage Foundation founder and director Shivendra Singh Dungarpur to advocate for the preservation and continued use of photochemical film in the digital age. Topics for discussion range from the intrinsic qualities of film that make it irreplaceable as a medium for artistic production and exhibition to the continued efforts needed to preserve India’s cinematic heritage.
The first Reframing the Future of Film took place at the Getty Center in Los Angeles in Spring of 2015. Additional iterations of the event were held at Tate Modern in London and at Museo Tamayo in Mexico City. Referencing the choice of location for this fourth iteration, Nolan commented, “India has such wonderful cinema and a rich history of art that everything needs to be done to not only encourage its proper preservation for future generations but also reintroduce the film medium to the younger artists and filmmakers in the country.”
For more information about the upcoming event and a preliminary schedule, please visit the Film Heritage Foundation website.
