Yes. Regardless of lay usage, for purposes of
discussion HERE, we need a term referring to works
shown by passing light through a strip of clear
acetate. Sadly, it may end up being "real film". For
decades now I've had to endure hearing people
(including "avant-garde" filmmakers) refer to super 8
films as "not real film"!
Mitsu seems to accept Google is all-knowing, the last
word for everyone. But obviously, on Frameworks we
need this debate. Mitsu is the one saying "It's a
fact. No discussion." (to paraphrase).
