As we come up for air after four fantastic days, we’ve got to say a huge thanks to everyone who came to Widescreen Weekend 2015 – the best attended edition yet!

A special thanks must go to Douglas Trumbull for his insights into an incredible career and a fascinating glimpse of future cinema technologies.

If you didn’t manage to get along, here’s just a small taste (or smell) of shots we got during the festival:
