We all love the whirling sound of the projector as it lights up the celluloid, allowing the viewer to see what cameras have once captured. But so many today have never seen a projector’s light outside of the last Tarantino film. So last Monday we at AMIA@UofT hosted a 16mm screening of some archival film!
Our member Sean graciously lent us some films he had about professionalism in the workplace, and our amateur projectionist lent a few cartoons form his collection.
Students had the opportunity to learn more about the working of a projector and the media that is 16mm. We have a few titles that weren’t shown, so keep an eye out next year for another movie night!
Thank you to the Inforum for allowing us to use the space! And thank you to Sean and Liam for lending us your lovely 16mm prints and projection skills.
-Elizabeth, President of AMIA@UofT
