I am almost certain they will be 16mm prints. Her films have always
been exhibited as prints here in the past. And, I believe I heard we
were getting prints. I will call the office tomorrow and confirm this.
We always do our best to get prints.

Her films are of course not in competition. But, when films/videos are
submitted in competition, if the application form says they were made
on film, but they have a video format listed for exhibition, we always
ask if they can possibly send us a print. Of course, often that is not
possible, because the film was transfered to, and edited in, video, and
not conformed. This interchange means that we may not always know what
format we will be showing at the time the program is finalized, and
posted on our site. But, we always obtain prints, if at all possible.
Our printed program has listed the exhibition formats in the past, and
I presume will do so this year. I am involved with screening and
programming of competition films. Others contact the makers, to see
what is the best format we can obtain. So, I don't always know, until
opening night or the day before, when I get a program.
