Digital Cinema keeps an eye firmly fixed on the future, exploring developments in digital production, restoration and delivery.

Recently ACMI has paid tribute to filmmakers who have embraced the opportunities that the new technologies offer and who have, as a result, created new forms of cinema. These have included Tarnation by Jonathan Caouette and the award-winning Peep 'TV' Show by Yutaka Tsuchiya. 

At the other end of the digital spectrum, ACMI presented selected highlights from the 2004 Venice Film Festival program The Secret History of Italian Cinema: Italian Kings of the 'Bs - an extraordinary project involving high-end digital restoration.
