ZAP – SF Film Centre Screening Room

Screen DCP Prints, Work-in-Progress QuickTimes, Edit Sequences, Color Grade Sequences or Videotapes in our 24-seat Calibrated D-Cinema screening room.

WORK-IN-PROGRESS SCREENINGS
In this age of laptop editing, directors are often surprised and sometimes alarmed when seeing their film on the big screen for the first time. Our digital cinema screening room is a great resource that allows you to view your fine cut before locking picture, enabling your team to make final decisions about everything, from the quality of archival and stock clips to motion effects and text styling.

CHECKING FINAL MASTERS – CLIENT AND CREW SCREENINGS
The intimate 24-seat theater is terrific for quality checking your final masters, digital prints and sound print masters. And it’s a great space to celebrate the completion of your film with colleagues, crew and funders.
