Cambodian Documentary Wins Cannes Prize for Innovative Cinema

images19

CANNES – A documentary using small clay figurines to tell the story of how Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh’s family perished under the Khmer Rouge regime won the top prize in the second most important competition at the Cannes film festival on Saturday.

L’Image Manquante (The Missing Picture) was among the 18 films that premiered in the Un Certain Regard category that was set up to encourage emerging and innovative filmmakers and run alongside the main competition at the world’s top film festival.

Panh, 49, a prolific filmmaker whose films concentrate on the brutality in Cambodia when an estimated 1.7 million people were killed during the 1975-79 Khmer Rouge regime, said the prize was important for his country.

For a country that has emerged from its difficulties and years of war, it is important to say we are still alive,” Panh told Reuters after receiving his award at a red carpet ceremony in the French Riviera resort.

The jury led by Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, whose film Jagten (The Hunt) won Mads Mikkelsen the best actor award at Cannes last year, described the documentary as one of the most powerful films I have seen in many years”.

The runner-up was Omar by Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, a political thriller involving Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in which a young baker, Omar, is tortured by Israel’s secret police to betray his friends.

Omar, which was shot in the West Bank and Israeli-Arab town of Nazareth last year, received a standing ovation at its premiere as the first film fully funded by the Palestinian cinema industry.

It is the only festival that I think still cares about different films,” said Abu-Assad, known for the 2005 award-winning film Paradise Now, as he received his award.

Another director in Un Certain Regard to get a standing ovation was Iran’s Mohammad Rasoulof who was jailed in 2010 for anti-regime propaganda but came to Cannes this year with Manuscripts Don’t Burn, shot in secret in his home country.

The non-professional actors of La Jaula de Oro (The Golden Cage), a film about three young Guatemalans trying to cross the Mexico-U.S. border from director Diego Quemada-Diez won an award for best cast.

Kordor Electronics Releases Digital Cinema Movie Distribution Technology

images9

Kodor Electronics gives a boost to the digital cinema initiative today with the release of the KodeKey Professional Zip Platform for Windows and Mac OS X computer systems.

Movie studios are expected to make wide investments in digital cinema upgrades in 2009 following a ten-year research and development period starting with the 1999 digital release of Walt Disney Pictures Bicentennial Man. Digital films are packaged and distributed using an industry standard specification called the Digital Cinema Package (DCP). Part of the DCP specification is the digital film MXF container that can range in single file sizes of 60GB to 500GB. Today, digital films are delivered by hard drive or satellite data transmission using fulfillment services from companies like Technicolor, Kodak, and Deluxe. Legacy celluloid reel manufacturing and distribution costs movie studios up to $1500 a print per theater. Digital distribution provides a dramatic drop in initial distribution investment for movie studios but has proven to be a bit costly due to hard drive delivery and expensive satellite rental time. The cost savings reserved from digital versus celluloid distribution is planned for investments into digital projector upgrades for theater vendors by the movie studios.

Delivering a system with an average per film distribution cost of $70, the KodeKey Zip technology is an online powered zip format that replaces the internal data storage of a traditional zip file with the cloud storage infrastructure of the Amazon Web Services S3 platform. By using an upload and download manager, the format can manage hundreds of gigabytes of data in a zip file less than 1 kilobyte in size per movie.

Optionally, the format can create 1,344,000-bit password certificates to add additional access protection as an accessory to KDM encryption keys sent to theater vendors to unlock playback rights for MXF containers.

Broadband delivery of digital films has been a challenge in the past due to poor TCP connections and poor designs of online storage servers required to handle single file sizes above 5GB. KodeKey Zip has been tested and approved for up to 1TB of single file archiving validated by rigorous 12-mode hash string calculation certification.

“KodeKey Zip has been designed to easily deliver 300GB digital films as an e-mail attachment to thousands of theaters simultaneously”, says inventor and Chairman William G. Blanchard, “We are honored to work with the digital film initiative and look forward to provide support to the digital movie industry worldwide.”

Home cinema systems and their rise in popularity

In the not too distant past, watching a film was a proper social activity, with the only possible way of doing so being to actually go to the cinema. However with the introduction of technology that is constantly being developed, it seemed inevitable that this would not remain the same.

Firstly, there were VCRs, yes that’s right, though they are obsolete now there once was a time when these were the height of technology and allowed consumers to rent, buy or even record films and view them in the comfort of their own homes. Then followed DVD players – these gave us better quality and eliminated the hassle of rewinding and fast forwarding and it was good, but it seemed there were still factors missing if you were to truly replicate the -cinema experience’.

The huge screens provided at the cinema were undeniably an essential factor in the experience, and certainly the TVs available when VCRs were around would have paled in comparison. Not only did the TVs have smaller screens but the speakers were also of poor quality and issues with the screen sizes and aspect ratios also proved to be problematic.

Nevertheless, all of this outdated technology, though left behind, has proved to be an essential stepping-stone for what was to follow, the home cinema. Yes, it seems that now the technology is available, more and more people are opting for the home cinema experience, transforming their living rooms into movie theatres. Watching films at home does seem to have its advantages; for instance, it’s often quieter and more convenient than going to actual theatre. So, what do you need to set up your home cinema system?

1)Though it may seems obvious, a good starting point is a large television. When you see a film in a theatre the screen envelops your field of view, allowing you to become completely emerged in the film. A TV with a big screen will help to imitate this. 2)Having a high quality telly is also essential. At the cinema we are always presented with huge high definition images, the detail and clarity allows for a greater sense of realism. Also, if a large screen provides low quality images it will accentuate the poor quality of the picture. 3)Finally, we come to the sound side of the system. Although it may not seem like it is of great importance, in actual fact a good sound system can really help to bring a film to life. When watching a film at the cinema,, the sound propagates from numerous places. The music, sound effects and dialogue do not just come from the screen but completely surround you. Surround sound and surround panning can really put you -inside’ the movie by creating a 3 dimensional soundscape.

If you’re looking for a new TV to start your home cinema with, why not try looking online for Panasonic LCD TVs and Samsung LCD TVs?

Flat Screen Televisions Vs Going To The Cinema

women15

Years ago, when cinema first became popular, for a lot of people it was the only way for them to see movies, because most of them didn’t have their own televisions. The thing is though, cinema has always had a much better quality viewing experience than home televisions, so it has remained the ultimate way to experience a movie.

The Invention of Video Tapes

For a long time, the one problem with both cinema and TV is that you needed to watch a film at a specific time. With the invention of home video systems such as VHS and Betamax, movie fans were able to either record films from the TV or rent films from a video library. However, there was still the problem of quality, as cinema was still a far superior experience than watching a video at home.

The Rise of DVDs

Part of the quality issue was dramatically improved with the invention of the DVD. DVD meant that anyone could watch very high quality digital video at home. Unlike VHS tapes for example, DVDs didnt wear out or degrade over time, as long as you didnt get the discs scratched. From the 1990’s onwards, DVDs became extremely popular amongst movie fans. The only problem was, unless you had an extremely large TV screen and a very expensive sound system, you still wouldn’t get the same experience as the cinema.

The Experience of Home Cinema

Nowadays, the true home cinema experience is becoming much more of a reality for many people, as they buy large widescreen TVs and high quality speakers. For example, with a plasma TV screen of 50 inches or more, and being sat closer to the screen than you would be in a cinema, youre going to get a very cinematic feel. And you wont miss having someone sat behind you who wont stop talking through every scene.

Reasons to Visit the Cinema

However, even with home cinema quality jumping forwards in leaps and bounds, dont you think theres still something missing? Theres just something about actually going out to the cinema. It gives you a reason to spend time with your friends and experience something together. And lets face it: in all honesty, the experience at home really isnt quite as good as the full blown cinema experience, is it?

Why You Should Still Stay at Home Instead

The only problem with visiting the cinema is that it costs you more money than it does to just stay at home with a DVD. But also, when you’re at home, you can fit your movie watching around the other things you want to do. You can also eat your own food. Just relax and watch your favourite movie while eating your dinner.

A Guide To Home Cinema Perfection

While it is ideal to have a spacious room for your home cinema, you can still enjoy the best home cinema from a smaller room in a quaint home. The trick is to use the features of your room to blend with the home cinema; the electronics should fit in comfortably with the rest of the settings.

Here are some suggestions on how to enjoy the best home cinema in a room that does not look like a spacious lounge.

The Dimensions Of The Room

Do use a rectangular room, and don’t use a square room. The room should be longer than it is wider for a home cinema not to completely dominate the room.

And just as you don’t want the room to be a square, you don’t want it to be a cube either, so ceiling height is also something to consider. The height of the room, from floor to ceiling, should not match the length of the room.

Reduce or Eliminate Unpleasant Bouncing Sounds

Do use a rug or carpet, and don’t use a bare floor, even if it is nicely laminated or has beautiful floorboards. This time the reason is not aesthetics, but functionality. Bare floors will bounce the sound, while rugs or carpets will absorb sound comfortably and you will not hear a strange humming sound as you watch a movie.

Similarly, add thick curtains to the windows. Again for the same reason. You don’t want the windows to reverberate when watching your show. Thick curtains that block out the light will add another dimension to your viewing pleasure.

Finally, if you can, change the door. By choosing a fire proof door, you will eliminate audio problems created by a vibrating door.

Be Selective About Your Technological Choices

While a 7.1 system is more impressive than a 5.1, and dynamic mode creates bright and compelling images, these choices in home cinema will have an overpowering effect on the total ambiance of the room. In other words, you are overdoing the electronic stimulation. Just as you want the physical home cinema to blend in with the size of the room, so, too, you want the cinematic effects to be pleasant, not jarring.

Bigger Is Not Always Better

Sound is important to pull you into the movie, but big speakers are not necessary at all. You can get the same sound effects with five small satellite speakers and a subwoofer.

Don’t keep your TV more than 15 degrees from eye height; for example, if you have a flat screen, you should not put it on a mantle piece. Having the screen too high will eventually cause a crick in your neck.
