Colour in Film
Monday to Wednesday 27 – 29 March 2017
BFI Southbank and Friends House, London
This conference will cover the entire breadth of colour in moving images, from early (pre)cinema’s chromolithographic printing through the applied colours of tinting, toning and their Desmetcolor rendition, from chromogenic Agfacolor and Eastmancolor through the video- and film- based look of the golden age of British colour television and up to modern, current grading in the digital domain.
The conference will begin with an afternoon of screenings in the beautiful NFT3 theatre at BFI Southbank on March 27, followed by a full day of symposium sessions in Friends House, where we will conclude on March 29 with Sarah Street’s project workshop on the Eastmancolor revolution.
