The upcoming Media Technology Day, held at the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho on 31st October, is to host sessions both on the enduring legacy of film and on the use of the ARRI Mini LF and Signature Primes.

The panel is chaired by director Ed Sayers and includes Ben Link, MD of Missing Link Films; Eoin Glaister, Director at Stink Films; Simona Cristea, Head of Colour at Coffee & TV and Adrian Bull, CEO of Cinelab London. They will discuss why filmmakers are still shooting on celluloid and share their own experiences of using the medium.

ARRI is hosting a session that will focus on productions produced this year using the Mini LF and Signature Primes. Chaired by ARRI’s Milan Krslijanan, the panel includes Directors Daphne Schmon, Emily Carlton and Luke Bradford and Trinity Operator Charlie Rizek.
