Aspect ratio and film festivals.
on Sep 8, 2018 at 4:09:29 am

My next project is a horror thriller type genre film and I am contemplating which aspect ratio to shoot it in.

I was thinking either 2.39:1 or 2.20:1. However, I was told that most theaters are specifically formatted to project at either 1.85:1 or 2.39:1, and that most projections are not trained on how to adjust projections at most theaters, which is why they have just the main two aspect ratio settings almost all the time. Therefore, I was told to shoot in 2.39:1 to be safe.

But do you think that's true though, and I should shoot in 2.39:1 to be safe with most theaters when it comes to entering into film festivals?
