In fact the last two Sundance festivals were won by indies shot on S16mm.  Half of the films up for Best Picture or Best Cinematography Oscars this year were shot all or in part on film.  My point is that the most important aspects of film.... Image Acquisition and Archival Preservation are alive and well.

Congratulations, Paul.

How much influence do you think film as a medium had on the acceptance of the film-originated movies as compared to digital originated movies?

What other observations are you making at Sundance regarding film as compared to digital?

We hope your desire to have film as an acquisition and archival medium is realized for a long time.
