Digital dilemma

On the day that Kodak files for bankruptcy, we also get the trailer for Keanu Reeves' fascinating looking documentary Side By Side that examines the future of filmmaking as the move to digital grows apace. When I asked Soderbergh last year about the death of celluloid and whether he'd ever shoot again on film he said, No. More recently, Andrew Stanton told me he shot John Carter on film because he might never get another chance to use good, old-fashioned celluloid. Side By Side is showing at next month's Berlin Film Festival. I have no idea of its release plans beyond that, but this is a must-see in my book.
