Projection Resources

This page is dedicated to the many film projection resources and projects that FATF has initiated.


Project Film

Project Film is a Task Force initiative to create resources for those wishing to use motion picture film as a production, preservation and exhibition format. We want to make sure that filmmakers, archivists and exhibitors have accurate information about their options! This includes tutorials on maintaining 35mm exhibition in the digital age and an interactive website with practical information on topics ranging from where to find 35mm prints for programming to classroom-projector maintenance.

AMIA, in partnership with the Alamo Drafthouse, presented a Film Projection Workshop on October 28, 2014 at the Alamo South Lamar, Austin TX to offer training for managers, curators and projectionists presenting 35mm film in theaters.

The workshop offered a hands-on tutorial for projectionists and theater staff working with 35mm film prints and focussed on film preparation and projection as well as special stipulations for archival projection, coordinating with lending institutions, and paperwork.

The one-day course attracted 20 participants, and more events are planned.

With thanks and appreciation to Alamo Drafthouse and all involved in the organisation of this event, and also to those who participated

    Hello, I work as a booth director in the Houston area for a film exhibitor. I maintain 3 working 35mm projectors as well as a 15/70 IMAX film projector. I am always looking for ways to show film, but usually not successful. Should anyone have use for our equipment please let them know as I would love to use the equipment anytime! Thanks
