‘The Origins of Cinema’ Workshop — HKAFF X REEL TO REEL INSTITUTE

The early days of cinema was an era when creativity burst forth. Commercial organisations, filmmakers or inventors all over the world rushed to create various machines and films for shooting and viewing moving images. It was originally some continuous images frame by frame, but in just a few decades it has become a popular and entertaining activity. In the digital age, the materiality of cinema has been re-emphasised. There have been many discussions and movements on the inheritance of cinematic experiences in various periods.

The talk focuses on the history and technological development of cinema and their influence on film creation. Participants will also have the opportunity to come close to the celluloid films and projector, and understand its historical and aesthetic significance.
