Magnificent 70mm — Dunkirk + Interstellar | TIFF | Friday, 29. December 2017

Spend your winter in widescreen with films that should be seen as big and as loud as possible, in glorious 70mm: Christopher Nolan's shot-on-celluloid Dunkirk and Interstellar.

"It's a grand canvas and improves me as a filmmaker. I think of my shots as tableaus now." —Christopher Nolan on shooting 70MM

On a slowly dying Earth in the near future, a former spaceship pilot (Matthew McConaughey) signs on to a last-ditch NASA mission to explore possible habitable worlds via a wormhole in order to find a new home for humanity. Shot on celluloid even as it utilizes state-of-the-art digital effects, Christopher Nolan's blockbuster space adventure offers a fusion of old school and new frontiers. Screening Dec 29, Jan 2, 5.

Christopher Nolan, the king of the conceptual blockbuster, finds a newly perfect fusion of form and content with this chronicle of the “miraculous” Allied evacuation from France in the summer of 1940, with Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles, and Kenneth Branagh. Screening Jan 3, 6, 7.
