STATE OF PLAY SEMINAR – Cinema 2.0: 3D, Big Screen & Participatory Futures

FREE – 29 July 2009 – AFTRS Theatre. 5.30 – 7pm

How will the traditionally passive cinema experience change in the next few years. Stereoscopic 3D films are becoming commonplace alongside specialised 3D Imax outings and in the past few months we have experienced Monsters vs Aliens, Up, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Coraline, My Bloody Valentine. Dreamworks have committed to producing all CG films in 3D and there are new releases planned over the next 6 months including Avatar, The Final Destination, re-release of Toy Story 1 & 2. A Christmas Carol & Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. But what about more interactive cinema with games or social applications particularly with YouTube recently delivering a full 3D capability? Where does the future lie for cinemas and other public screen spaces?
