Screening Technologies of the Future An Open Letter from the director of EnergaCAMERIMAGE festival, Marek Żydowicz

Dear filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts,

As the director of EnergaCAMERIMAGE International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, I would like to make an unusual appeal to you. We seek your advice based on your professional know-how and expertise. As you might already know, we received funding in the amount of approximately 160 million USD for the construction of the European Film Center CAMERIMAGE. We intend to design one of the screening rooms in the venue based on “ the screening technologies of the future”. For a long time, we have considered the need to embrace the IMAX format as part of our festival. I would like to hear your opinion on this matter. Should we build an IMAX cinema in our center, or would you rather see other cutting-edge cinema projection technologies that would take the quality of our audience experience to the next level? If so, what are those technologies? What solutions should we look for?

We want to predict and embrace the future of cinematic image projection based on both reliable and innovative technologies. We have to start designing the building at the beginning of the new year, that is why I am asking you to share your thoughts and comments with us now. We plan to have the main screening room for our Main Competition and four screening rooms dedicated to other competitive sections and special screenings. The building itself will also feature a large foyer, a 2000 m2 market area, education center, a 700 m2 motion picture studio and a museum of film and design.

The only unknown for us now is whether we need an IMAX cinema or should we rather seek other screening technologies of the future. If so, what are those? If you have any ideas, please share your recommendations of manufacturers or users of such technologies, with whom we would then get in touch to discuss this ambitious project of ours. Let’s build our cinematic future together!

Thank you so much for your support in this matter.
