Imago Conference in Oslo
Slower than dreaded latency in video transmission, this article arrives a month late. “The dog ate my homework,” the internet was slow, and other excuses abound. The European marathon tour of companies and events is finally completed: Wetzlar-Frankfurt-Oslo-Munich-Berlin-Amsterdam-Munich-Freyung-Cortina d’Ampezzo, Asolo, Feltre, Bassano del Grappa, Venice and Vienna.
Let’s catch up and start with Oslo.
Imago’s 2017 Digital Cinema Conference was a 3-day event held in the Norwegian Film Institute in Oslo.
As reported in the New York Times, Norway is the happiest country in the world. Participants at the Cinema Conference certainly were very happy with the superb program put together by Imago President and Norwegian cinematographer Paul René Roestad, FNF and his team.
Read the full report by Lars Pettersson, FSF.
