This is a very interesting discussion. :)

I think that the term "film" is far beyond the material context.

Otherwise we would have a really complex situation when a DVD-version (or
VHS, LD, HD...) of a film wouldn't be a film. Surely it _is_ only a
re-presentation (and a manipulated one, more or less depending on the
format), but that is what cinema has allways been (and there's allways a
certain degree of manipulation).
