Nolan, who is regarded as one of the most influential filmmakers of the 21st century courtesy titles like "Batman Begins", "Inception", "Interstellar" and "Dunkirk", is in India to draw attention to the importance of celluloid in the digital age. Inspiring to hear Mr.Nolan & Ms.Tacita Dean talk of the virtues of celluloid as an artist's medium. The session was attended by visual artiste Tacita Dean and Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, the founder of Film Heritage Foundation (FHF).

Christopher Nolan may be known as a filmmaker who likes to employ cutting-edge technology in his films, but he prefers physical celluloid film over digital.

Not just King Khan but the latest entrant of Indian politics Kamal Haasan also shared a picture of himself with the Ace director on Friday. There are various allies and tremendous filmmakers who love to shoot on film.

The director, who released his World War II drama "Dunkirk" earlier than the scheduled date in cinemas that still projected celluloid, said a film is a director's dream and it should be their call when it comes to the movie watching experience they want their audiences to have. "But at the moment it's really about getting people to experience and getting them to hand these equipments". "But the reality is that he told me a few years ago, and when I heard it I realised that it would be very hard for me to muster any enthusiasm for waking up early in the morning and going to work if there weren't a real film camera on the set". "I want to watch more of them".

Calling the morning's roundtable meeting "productive", Nolan said he was there to make the case for the place of celluloid film in the future, in a post-digital world. However Kamal had apparently watched the film in digital.

On discussing the outcome of the meeting Nolan said, "What was exciting about our meeting with the leading members of Indian film community is that there is a spirit of optimism". All of his films have been shot on celluloid with hefty cameras like the IMAX camera used in Dunkirk and Interstellar.
