Christie is proud to serve as projection partner for the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which will take place from September 5th–15th.
In its 13th year as a Festival sponsor, Christie is providing industry-leading 4K projection solutions in addition to projectors from its Christie Solaria CP 2200 line, as well as one HD10K-M projector and three Cine-IPM 2K image processors.
“Christie’s reliable digital cinema projectors help us to give our patrons the best possible cinema experience, whether for standard 2K movies or high-resolution 4K productions in 2D or 3D,” said Diane Cappelletto, TIFF’s director of technical production services. “For brightness, colour, depth and content security, Christie leads the way. We’re very pleased to work with Christie, one of our key, valued partners.”
The Toronto International Film Festival is the leading public film festival in the world, screening 366 features and 146 world premieres from 70 countries this year.
“Throughout Christie’s long-standing partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival, we have seen the growing use of a variety of digital projection technologies,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president, global and corporate marketing, Christie. “This year’s strong 4K projection presence is very much in keeping with TIFF Festival’s leadership in new film technologies.”
As part of the Festival’s industry conference, Dr. Paul Salvini, Christie’s chief technology officer, will be a panelist at the “Cinematography and Technology-4K: Beyond RED” discussion on 10th September at 10:00 a.m., along with noted cinematographer Nick De Pencier and moderator David Leitner of Filmmaker Magazine.
