As part of a visit to revive film and film collaborations in India, Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke will join motion picture film director Christopher Nolan, artist Tacita Dean, founder of the Film Heritage Foundation Shivendra Singh Dungarpur and other leaders of India’s film and cinematography industry in a roundtable discussion, a highlight of the upcoming Reframing the Future of Film 4 event.
Hosted by the Film Heritage Foundation, the roundtable aims to spark a conversation about the importance of shooting on film, preserving and archiving on film, and projecting film as an essential part of our visual experience and history.
"The global enthusiasm for film continues to thrive, especially here in India,” said Kodak CEO, Jeff Clarke. “Mumbai is one of the centers of the motion picture industry, and Kodak looks forward to growing our presence here and seeing more projects shot on film."
In addition to the roundtable, other activities will highlight the necessity of preserving photochemical film in the digital age. This includes a screening of Christopher Nolan’s Academy Award nominated film Dunkirk, which will be projected on KODAK 70mm film. Tacita Dean will deliver a public lecture at the Bhau Daji Lad Museum.
Kodak will also host a series of Super 8 and Super 16mm film workshops for enthusiasts and cinematographers.
The Reframing the Future of Film 4 event will take place from March 30th- April 2nd in Mumbai.
