Oscar-nominated director Christopher Nolan said it isn’t about Film versus Digital but about preserving film medium for future generation.
Dunkirk director arrived in India for a panel discussion on ‘The future of film in India’ along with fellow panelists Tacita Dean and Shivendra Singh Dungarpur.
While talking about his experience as a member of ‘Save film’ a movement to preserve the medium, Nolan said, “We spent the last few years perfectly explaining that film is here to stay and it is a wonderful medium that we can all enjoy. We have continued to work in the same way we have been working for many years.
And as Tacita (panelist) said, it isn’t really about Film versus digital. it’s about preserving this medium for future generation of filmmaking to be able to use it.
The panelists had a meeting with the leading members of the Indian Film industry including Shah Rukh Khan, Kamal Hassan, and many more.
On discussing the outcome of the meeting Nolan said, “What was exciting about our meeting with the leading members of Indian film community is that there is a spirit of optimism. There is a spirit of having a wonderful future and potential. There is a lot excitement among filmmakers and exhibitors terms of continuing to give the audience a reason o leave their homes and come together in a movie theater and experience a story.”
