Christie to Deliver Superior Visual Experiences at Toronto International Film Festival 2012

Entrusts Christie’s Powerful Digital Cinema Projectors With Over 600 Screenings
Christie®, a world leader in advanced cinema technologies, today announced its continued sponsorship of theToronto International Film Festival® by providing multiple Christie Solaria™ Series digital cinema projectors.

Recognized around the world for presenting the best of international and Canadian cinema to film lovers, the Festival screens more than 300 films from 60+ countries during its 11-day program September 6-16, in addition to offering year-long programming.  This year represents Christie’s 12thyear as the official projection sponsor, supporting The Festival’s mission of transforming the way people see the world through film. In 2011, The Festival selected Christie’s industry-leading Christie Solaria 4K DLP Cinema® projector for screening filmmakers’ Ron Fricke’s and Mark Magidson’s 70mm movie Samsara – marking the first 4K screening at The Festival, while Francis Ford Coppola’s movie Twixt was shown in 3D on a Christie CP2230 4K-ready DLP Cinema® projector.
“The explosion of digital cinema technology has provided the industry with accessibility while meeting the rising demand of filmmakers around the world who want their films screened in the highest digital quality available,” said Diane Cappelletto, The Festival’s Director of Technical Production. Cappelleto adds:  “Transforming many of our screens to digital format was made possible with the support of Christie, whose digital projectors are recognized worldwide for performance and reliability. We value Christie’s exceptional image quality and expert service to help make the Festival successful every year.”
“Throughout Christie’s long-standing partnership with The Festival, we have seen a growing use of digital projection technology for screenings. Last year,the sold-out documentary “Samsara” was screened in 4K,”said Kathryn Cress, vice president, Global and Corporate Marketing, Christie.  “With its international flavor, The Festival truly transforms the way people see the world, and Christie is proud to support it as it transitions from what was once a film-only industry to one predominantly digital,” adds Cress.

 Christie digital projectors are used by leading Festivals around the globe. This year, Christie renewed its official technical sponsorship of the Festival de Cannes for the next three years, a position it has held since 2006. In addition, Christie was the exclusive projection sponsor of the “Water for Elephants” screening at the opening gala of the 14th Shanghai International Film Festival last year. Today, Christie equipment is found in more than half of all digital projection rooms – about 33, 000 projectors in use.
