Christie's 4K cinema projector technology is being used at a world-leading film festival.
The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) got underway on 4 September and will run until 14 September, with 4K submissions to the festival having doubled from 2013.
This year's event features an expanded list of venues that have been fitted with Christie 4K-resolution digital cinema projection in order to meet this demand and Roy Thomson Hall, Princess of Wales Theatre, the Elgin Theatre's Visa Screening Room and Ryerson Theatre all have the technology.
Diane Cappelletto, TIFF's director of technical production services, explained that Christie has "been instrumental in helping us meet the evolving needs of filmmakers" following a global technological revolution in the last few years that has transformed the filmmaking world.
Kathryn Cress, vice-president of global and corporate marketing at Christie, said: "Christie continues to set the new standard for uncompromising image fidelity, brightness, and resolution, allowing filmmakers to share their visions with audiences in ways they never could before."
Among the films to be showing in 4K technology using Christie's projectors at this year's TIFF event is Sturla Gunnarsson’s Monsoon, which details the impact of heavy rainfall in India.
As part of this year's TIFF, a session will be held on the latest in large-sensor cinematography and what impact 4K technology is going to have on filmmaking in the coming years.
