Digitale Cinematographie 2011 – The countdown has begun

Digitale Cinematographie

Thursday 20th October 2011 sees the start of the two-day “Digitale Cinematographie” event, taking place at its new location in the Alten Kongresshalle (Old Congress Hall) on Theresienhöhe. Entry is free of charge and visitors will be able to attend workshops und screenings with various prestigious names present, as well as an exhibition featuring more than 45 renowned producers and service providers from the field of digital cinematography. Online registration is possible until 18/10/2011, while from 20/10/2011 you can register directly at the premises.

The Digitale Cinematographie is full of attractions again this year, with a professional programme comprised of workshops, screenings and an exhibition. As well as the main theme, “Challenges of file-based workflows”, there will be a focus on the latest technical innovations in the field: 3D, camera innovations from RED, ARRI and SONY, recording systems, Codex and much more. Over 30 professional talks, with an emphasis on practical work, will be held in parallel in three rooms. Visitors are requested to pay attention to the programme information on the monitors, in case of any changes to room allocation or schedule.

Concerning the workshop cinema (which will be used for the first time in this form), the partner company zweiB has agreed to act as sponsor. The cinema, which is equipped with a Christie CP 2210 compact 2K DLP digital cinema projector, will show trailers and showreels produced using ARRI Alexa and SONY F-65 cameras, along with film excerpts. The feature film debut “Hell” from Tim Fehlbaum, “Gas Monopoly” from Richard Ladkani and exclusive images from current productions by DOP Geoff Boyle are definitely worth viewing. Due consideration is also accorded to up-and-coming talent, with the Fachhochschule of Salzburg presenting three of its own productions. The screenings presented in the workshop cinema are interactive in nature, and attendees are encouraged to engage in intensive discussions with experts. Author, director and producer Su Turhan will guide the audience through the programme.


SONY will again act as main sponsor of the Digitale Cinematographie.

The communicative nature of the Digitale Cinematographie event is expected to be maintained in the new premises, and the exchange of experience with renowned specialists will continue to take centre stage. With such a wealth of creativity present, there will inevitably be one or two surprises up until the end, and so it is recommended that visitors attend the event on both days.
