For almost 100 years, there was only one way to make a movie — with film. Movies were shot, edited and projected using photochemical film. But over the last two decades a digital process has emerged to challenge photochemical filmmaking. This outstanding new doc takes an in-depth look at this revolution. Through interviews with directors, cinematographers, film students, producers, editors, and exhibitors, the film examines all aspects of filmmaking — from capture to edit, visual effects to color correction, distribution to archive. At this moment when digital and photochemical filmmaking coexist, Side by Side explores what has been gained, what is lost, and what the future might bring. Featuring appearances by David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, and dozens more. (2012, 98 min, digital)
