All things bright and beautiful are coming to our fair city once more this March. The fifth International Colour in Film Conference will take place at BFI Southbank, London, 11-13 March 2020. That’s the week before Hippfest, people.
Highlights for this year include James Layton’s presentation of new MOMA restorations and Barbara Flueckiger’s closing report on the massive ERC project, FilmColors: An Interdisciplinary Approach. Eva Hielscher will present the ColorMania book and there will be a curatorial keynote from Paolo Cherchi Usai, who will also be signing copies of his latest book.
There will be papers and presentations on matters pertaining to colour film and colour film restoration, and an evening screening that is currently TBA. Plus I hear Neil Brand will be on hand to accompany films on the Monday … Psst, but my insider informs me there will be also be some 1970s luridness that has to be seen to be believed!
