A gorgeous gift for every cinephile, The Art of Film Projection celebrates this enduring analog art

The Art of Film Projection: A Beginner's Guide is a beautifully produced, comprehensive outline of the materials, equipment and knowledge needed to present the magic of cinema to an enthralled audience.

Part manual and part manifesto, The Art of Film Projection compiles more than 50 years of expertise from the staff of the world-renowned George Eastman Museum and the students of the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation into the most complete and accessible guide to film projection ever produced. The product of more than ten years of painstaking work by renowned film preservation specialists, and featuring a foreword by Tacita Dean and Christopher Nolan, this volume addresses a changing film landscape.

No film comes to life until it is shown on the big screen, but with the proliferation of digital movie theaters, the expertise of film projection has become increasingly rare. Written for both the casual enthusiast and the professional projectionist in training, this book demystifies the process of film projection and offers an in-depth understanding of the aesthetic, technical and historical features of motion pictures. Fully accessible to the layperson, student, technician or scholar, the book is designed to be used: richly illustrated with photographs and easy-to-read diagrams, it is printed at a size that is easy to carry, with a ribbon bookmark and pages for notes. The Art of Film Projection invites readers to help save the authentic experience of seeing motion pictures on film.

'The Art of Film Projection' is both manifesto and how-to guide

'The Art of Film Projection' is both manifesto and how-to guide

Some day, analog film projection may be a thing of the past, a distant romantic memory akin to phone calls made via rotary phone or transport by way of horse drawn carriage. And yet, film projection is an art, a human intervention, inseparable from the creation of the medium itself, and so far, the results are superior to anything available in the digital sphere. The people at George Eastman Museum know this, and they've put together a book that is basically perfect, even as it cites its own willingness to morph over future iterations. A beautifully designed hardcover with classic stamping and ribbon, this supremely giftable "beginners guide" is at once manifesto, time-capsule of connoisseurship and how-to manual. "Cinema will always be an art form that exists in three dimensions," Tacita Dean and Christopher Nolan write, "it requires a projector and projectionist, as much as it needs the physical volume of the theatre and an audience to watch it. Knowledge of changeover cues, aspect ratios and loop sizes is not the arcane information of a lost era but the expertise necessary to project a film correctly today. To disrespect the role of the projectionist is to disrespect cinema itself." continue to blog
