Side By Side (2012) MIFF Film Review


Keanu Reeves interviews a series of film directors, cinematographers, SFX people and others about the changes the industry is making from celluloid film to digital.

It’s got everything – those holding on to film talking about the impatience of young filmmakers, those who think this technology will kill the industry, then on the other side there are those who adopted the technology early and have pioneered techniques and those who initially resisted but are learning to love it.

If you don’t know much about the two forms, don’t worry. It gets explained, but not in a condescending manner. Once you’ve seen this, you will potentially be looking at films in a different manner, trying to see whether or not you can tell the difference between digital and celluloid  -and if it matters.
