The department in which I teach is in the process of overhauling its
classrooms and screening spaces, redesigning them from top to bottom.
We're discussing which film and video formats are essential for
teaching and for the presentation of work by visiting filmmakers,
artists, archivists, and curators. I would be very interested to hear
from anyone on the list, but especially filmmakers, which formats
you'd consider essential. 16mm and 35mm are givens, as are DVD and
VHS. Those of us with a stake in independent documentary and
experimental are pushing also for 8mm and Super 8, miniDV, BetaSP,
and DVCam.

Any thoughts or suggestions, on- or off-list, will be greatly
