SECOND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE COLOUR IN FILM
Mon, 27 Mar 2017, 12:00 – Wed, 29 Mar 2017, 13:30 BST
Colour in Film is an unique international event intended to foster and stimulate the interaction between the two vibrant, but still separate, colour film restoration and colour science circles.
Colour in Film is aimed at everyone interested in colour in cinema, colour in cultural heritage, colour reproduction and restoration, and colour perception, whether a film restorer, archivist, historian, enthusiast, or a colour scientist.
The event is co-organised by the Colour Group GB (http://colour.org.uk/) and HTW – University of Applied Sciences Berlin (http://www.fiafnet.org/pages/Community/Supporters-HTW.html; http://krg.htw-berlin.de/files/Stg/KR/Bachelor/KRG_Audiovisuelles_und_Fotografisches_Kulturgut-Moderne_Medien_En.pdf.pdf), in cooperation with ERC Advanced Grant FilmColors (University of Zurich)(http://filmcolors.org/2015/06/15/erc/), the British Film Institute (BFI), and Eastman Revolution and British Cinema, 1955-85 (University of Bristol).
The 2017 Colour in Film 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, Euston Road, London, where we will conclude on March 29 with Sarah Street's project workshop on the Eastmancolor revolution.
