DIAL M FOR MURDER (REMASTERED 3D EDITION)
BRIGHTON DIGITAL FESTIVAL 2013
TUESDAY 3 SEPTEMBER
Catch this one-off screening of Hitchcock's newly remastered and restored film, originally shot in 3D and based on Frederick Knott's stage hit. The screening will be followed by a discussion, with special guests making the case for and against 3D.
Lighthouse, in partnership with Picturehouse cinemas, presented a series of film screenings and talks that explored how digital technology is opening up new opportunities for telling stories, building story-worlds and enhancing the narrative of cinema beyond the screen.
Recently released by the BFI, this was an exciting opportunity to see the remastered version of Hitchcock’s classic, originally shot in 3D and starring Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, and Robert Cummings. The screening was followed by a discussion with special guests, Danny Leigh (co-host of BBC One’s Film 2013 and writer for The Guardian) and film historian, curator and broadcaster Ian Christie, making the case for and against 3D – one of the digital technologies which is proving most transformational within the cinema industry.
