Digital Cinema - A New Aesthetic?

Most discussion about the impact of digital technology focus on its revolutionary effects on cost and technique. But the most significant issue is aesthetic. How is digital technology changing the way we compose images and tell stories? How does it influence the choices filmmakers make? Are the decisions driven by economics, or is a new electronic aesthetic emerging? What is the range of aesthetic choices? Will digital acquisition, exhibition, and distribution change the landscape of filmmaking forever? Will celluloid ever be something we give up entirely? These are issues the current generation of filmmakers must consider. See examples of work and hear experts debate the issues of the digital aesthetic. Godfrey Cheshire will moderate this discussion.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
