In another sign that film is rapidly shrinking from the filmmaking formula,Paramount Pictures has announced that it will cease distributing film prints in the United States. The move is considered a historic one, with Paramount reported as being the first studio to leave film behind, although 20th Century Fox announced in 2012 that it would do the same over time. So, does that mean that film will only be an acquisition medium from here on out? It will be, at least where Paramount is concerned.
“It’s of huge significance. For 120 years, film and 35 mm has been the format of choice for theatrical presentations. Now we’re seeing the end of that. I’m not shocked that it’s happened, but how quickly it has happened.” – Jan-Christopher Horak, director of the UCLA Film & Television Archive in an interview with theLA Times.
