Registration open: Second International Conference, Colour in Film, 27-29 March, 2017, London

Dear colleagues and friends,

registration for our Second International Conference, Colour in Film, is now open via, where you can also find the conference schedule and program.

Please help spread the word, such as by sharing Silent London’s recent and enthusiastic post,, or better still, consider joining us!

Colour in Film is an unique international event intended to foster and stimulate the interaction between the two vibrant, but still separate, colour film restoration and colour science circles.

The Second International Conference, Colour in Film, will take place from 27-29 March, 2017 at BFI Southbank and George Fox Room, Friends House, 173 Euston Rd, London NW1 2BJ . It will cover the entire breadth of colour in moving images, from early (pre)cinema’s chromolithographic printing through the applied colours of tinting, toning and their Desmetcolor rendition, from chromogenic Agfacolor and Eastmancolor through the video- and film- based look of the golden age of British colour television and up to modern, current grading in the digital domain.

The conference will begin with an afternoon of screenings in the beautiful NFT3 theatre at BFI Southbank on March 27, followed by a full day of symposium sessions in Friends House, where we will conclude on March 29 with Sarah Street’s project workshop on the Eastmancolor revolution.

Colour in Film is aimed at everyone interested in colour in cinema, colour in cultural heritage, colour reproduction and restoration, and colour perception, whether a film restorer, archivist, historian, enthusiast, or a colour scientist.

The event is co-organised by the Colour Group (GB) and HTW – University of Applied Sciences Berlin, in cooperation with ERC Advanced Grant FilmColors (University of Zurich), the British Film Institute (BFI), and The Eastman Revolution project (University of Bristol).

Hope to see you in London!
