While at first images posed on celluloid films were traditionally presented with chemical processes, currently images are recorded, processed, distributed, and presented in digital form. This way, techniques applications which were impossible with traditional methods were enabled, production became simple, easy, and cheap, work of professionals degraded to amateur level, and screening and distribution opportunities increased. However, there were concerns regarding Digital Cinema and those people claimed that digitalisation can harm art of cinema. In this sense, it is extremely important to know which doors does digitalisation open to art of cinema in terms of pros and cons, and what are advantages and disadvantages.

In this study, Digital Cinema concept is defined, how this concept can be interpreted as conceptional and theoretical way are discussed, findings for comparison of conventional and digital film production are presented, these findings are analysed under “advantages” and “emerging problems” in relationship with the topic, future development of cinema is discussed, and which role will cinema art take in this digitalisation sense.
