Cinetopia: Pioneers and Preservers

About Cinetopia: Pioneers and Preservers

An evening of films that celebrates the earliest pioneers of cinema and the people who tirelessly work to preserve and share these films with others.

The programme will begin with short films from the early period of cinema followed by a discussion on how films were both filmed and exhibited differently at the time. This panel discussion will include local historians who are experts on early cinema in Scotland, and it will be more of a show and tell of films and images of early cinemagoing in Scotland featuring early films from National Library of Scotland's Moving Image Archive collection.

Our feature-length screening will be SAVING BRINTON, a documentary film that follows the efforts of a passionate Iowa-based collector, Michael Zahs, who fell upon a century-old collection of extremely rare films originally owned by turn-of-the-century traveling projectionists, Frank and Indiana Brinton. Saving Brinton (87 min.), which had its UK premiere recently at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, is directed by Andrew Sherburne and Tommy Haines.
