About the event

The World in 2012 Festival is a two-day event that builds on a more than quarter-century of publishing success with The Economist’s annual publication, The World in - a collection of trends and predictions that will shape the year ahead. The World in 2012 Festival brings the publication to life with a forward-thinking programme that balances sophisticated discussion with a provocative cultural experience unlike anything else. Luminaries from business, politics, science, universities, and the arts come together in a live arena to make their predictions and voice their ideas for 2012 and beyond.

Taking place in downtown Manhattan, The World in 2012 Festival will begin on Thursday, December 1st, for “an evening of global politics”, featuring some of today’s leading politics experts discussing three of the world’s most closely-watched 2012 presidential elections—the US, France and Mexico. The following Saturday, the festival continues with six diverse panel sessions, where experts will make predictions and engage in lively discussions on topics ranging from China’s power transition to global debt to the wild world of sport. The World in 2012 Festival is truly a must-attend experience for the culturally and intellectually engaged to hear what today’s top minds think about tomorrow.

How to Have My 8mm Film Digitizated to High Quality Digital DVD Movies





ScanMyPhotos.com has a new and improved 8mm transfer service to produce high quality movies from your old 8mm and Super8 reels.

Bring those old home movies into the digital age.



Watch this sample, professionally digitized 8mm film from ScanMyPhotos.com to showcase how special your newly preserved family movies will look.

The improved 8mm film transfer system at ScanMyPhotos.com boasts:


  • Scene by Scene Density Adjustment - As your film is digitized, the technician will manually adjust the scene to offer the best possible balance of clarity and overall look for that specific scene


  • Manual Retiming of Movie - Once digitized, our technicians view a small portion of your movie to ensure that the timing of the reel is correct. No more “old-time” movement that makes everyone look they were in a hurry.


  • Flicker Free Playback - Since we digitize your film frame-by-frame and manually retime the movie, you no longer get the flicker effect that plagues so many other transfers.


  • Full Frame Capture - We capture as much of the film as possible with no stretching or distorting of your movie to give you the most of your movie.


  • Menu with Selectable Chapters - We create DVDs with full menus and chapter selections so you can watch either all of the movies or select just the reels you want to watch.


  • Transfer in Order - Each reel is used to create a chapter on the DVD. If you would like them in a specific order, simply number the reels and we will transfer them in that order.

Another Customer Rave About Our Delicate Hand Scanning of Film Negatives

Just got my 1,017 negatives back and your work was FABULOUS.  I shot the pictures 20-30 years ago and yet your images showed no dust, no scratches, only great quality photos.
Your images were better than the original prints!!!   Also, before finding your company I had the negatives reprinted at a local drugstore and the quality of your work was vastly superior.  Thanks again for a great job, that was VERY affordable, and with FAST turnaround time.  I will be sending you more work soon.
