8, 18, 16 and 35 are the magic numbers that have essentially shaped the development of film and cinema: They are the different widths of film material. Even if digital film techniques have now replaced analog film formats, old film materials are by no means trivial relics. The analog film takes us back to the beginnings of film history, recalling and documenting how cinema thrilled its audience for decades.
On the occasion of the 55th Hof International Film Festival, we will look back on film and festival history with five formative works. In the unique series |8|16|35 we are showing HoF Classics analog on film. This really is only possible in the cinema!
