Digital Projection Selected For London International Festival Of Science Fiction And Fantastic Film

The 8th Annual London International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film has selected Emmy Award-winning manufacturer Digital Projection to supply Titan 1080p-700 projectors for this prestigious event.
Digital Projection will be supplying Titan 1080p-700 projectors to be used for digital screenings of a number of Premier movies, along with a range of some notable classic sci-fi movies.
DP's International Account Manager Bob Harris commented: "Digital Projection Limited is very pleased to have been selected to provide Titan projectors for this event, which gives the Sci-Fi Film Festival the flexibility and capability to show a multitude of digital acquisition formats on the large screen. The festival promotes and encourages new talent, often with limited budgets and a plethora of production formats, to produce unique content.
"This is shown alongside the output from the more traditional film production studios, the format flexibility of the Titan Projectors allows all content to be viewed in the best possible conditions."
The festival known as Sci-Fi London 8 takes place on the April 29 to May 4 at the Apollo Piccadilly Circus. This year sees a change to previous years with the edition of a Sci-Fi Lab. Festival Director Louis Savy, said: "We have created the Sci-Fi London Lab as filmmakers often tell us that sci-fi is tough to make due to a perceived need for special effects or lack of credible stories."
The Lab explores alternative ways of telling stories, something with fewer FX shots. Real scientists will be there to talk about the current slate of technology, space research, physics breakthroughs and more. The Lab sit amidst a programme of the best science fiction and fantastic film from around the world.
