Christopher Nolan will be taking a part in a talk to draw attention to the cause of film preservation and restoration

"My Fanboy moment. Inspiring to hear Mr.Nolan and Ms Tacita Dean talk of the virtues of celluloid as an artistes medium".

The director was part of the event titled 'Reframing the future of film ' along with Dean organised by Film Heritage Foundation and hosted by its director, filmmaker-archivist Shivendra Singh Dungarpur.

"Met Mr.Christopher Nolan. Apologised for seeing "Dunkirk" in the digital format and in return I am sending "Hey Ram" in digital format for him to see", Kamal tweeted. Stalwarts like Kamal Haasan, Shah Rukh Khan, AR Rahman and Rajkumar Hirani all thronged to meet the filmmaker and that just speaks volumes about his popularity in India. A visionary filmmaker, who has brought futuristic cinema to the big screen, he insists he's a traditionalist as far as filmmaking is concerned.

"It was the first time that we encouraged various communities like artists, filmmakers, stock manufacturers, lab owners, the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), [etc] to sit around one table and discuss with great concentration how we can keep film as a medium", Dean recalled of the first talk in Los Angeles.

Asked about what made him stop using social media, Nolan said: "Well, I really don't have to think about Facebook".

Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan called an urgent meeting with authorities in Bhopal to take stock of the situation. The civic commissioner said this version could not be ruled out as of now and a detailed investigation was on into it.

The director, who released his World War II drama "Dunkirk" earlier than the scheduled date in cinemas that still projected celluloid, said a film is a director's dream and it should be their call when it comes to the movie watching experience they want their audiences to have. "I want to watch more of them".

Not everyone who watches movies might have the ability to tell the difference between film and digital format. He playfully pointed out that the screening got sold out also because "it is a good film".

"Nolan is coming to India to talk about the advent of celluloid and shooting films in celluloid, something that he prefers".

Nolan met members of the Indian film fraternity today and discussed the various ways of preserving and archiving film as a medium.

Nolan will be present for the screenings of two of his recent films Oscar-nominated "Dunkirk" and "Interstellar". His latest offering "Dunkirk" was also film but in India came as a digital release.
