Side by Side: The Science, Art and Impact of Digital Cinema


Join producer Keanu Reeves on a tour of the past and the future of filmmaking in Side by Side. Since the invention of cinema, the standard format for recording moving images has been film. Over the past two decades, a new form of digital filmmaking has emerged, creating a groundbreaking evolution in the medium. Reeves explores the development of cinema and the impact of digital filmmaking via in-depth interviews with directors, cinematographers, film students, producers, technologists, editors, and exhibitors. Side by Side 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 an all-star cast of Hollywood masters, including James Cameron, David Fincher, David Lynch, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, Steven Soderbergh, and many more.
