I believe digital cinema will be ubiquitous with international film festivals in the very near future due to its speedy and secure preparation of the content for theatrical exhibition.”

The movies, “Thru the Moebius Strip” will be shown in the digital cinema theatre at Cannes Film Festival on May 13, May 14 and May 17 at Cinéma Olympia.
