The ongoing debate concerning digital vs. film isn't just about which format is preferred. The decision about which method to use depends on a variety of other factors including budgets, the size of the production, how the movie will be shot and so much more. And all of those issues are explored in the Keanu Reeves-produced documentary "Side By Side," a fascinating look at what is becoming one of the most important technological turning points that cinema has faced in quite some time.

The ongoing debate concerning digital vs. film isn't just about which format is preferred. The decision about which method to use depends on a variety of other factors including budgets, the size of the production, how the movie will be shot and so much more. And all of those issues are explored in the Keanu Reeves-produced documentary "Side By Side," a fascinating look at what is becoming one of the most important technological turning points that cinema has faced in quite some time.

Gearing up for the film's release later this month (and mark your calendars because it's one of our 10 Films To See In August), Tribeca Film have been dropping outtakes that are proving to be just as interesting as "Side By Side" itself. The first batch includes insights from Martin Scorsese on the economics between formats; Steven Soderbergh on the folly of dismissing advances in technology; Wally Pfister on Christopher Nolan's almost documentary-style approach to shooting, and famed cinematographer Michael Chapman with a rather gloomy forecast on where cinema is going.

This is all pretty much must-watch fare for cinephiles and anyone interested in the artform. "Side By Side" hits theaters on August 17th and iTunes on August 22nd. [Tribeca]
