IBC2016 Conference keynote address to be delivered by Ang Lee
WORLD: As part of the IBC Big Screen Experience at the upcoming IBC2016 Conference in Amsterdam, Academy Award winner Ang Lee will deliver a Keynote address on Monday 12th September. The director, screenwriter and producer is responsible for films such as Life of Pi, Brokeback Mountain and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
During the keynote, Mr Lee will discuss the cinematographic technique used for his soon-to-be released film: Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. The movie has reportedly been shot at 120 frames per second, in 4K and native 3D. This new cinematic format is described as offering ‘greater control over preserving artistic integrity over the increasing range of delivery formats both within cinema and to the wider electronic entertainment market’.
‘There is no finer keynote presenter for this year’s IBC Big Screen Experience than Ang Lee and we are very honoured to be hosting him,’ enthused IBC Big Screen Experience executive producer, Julian Pinn. ‘For over two decades, Ang Lee has shown true mastery in utilising cutting-edge science and cinematographic techniques towards his creation of some of the very finest works of cinematic story-telling art.’
