Semantics

I'm very busy right now preparing for my next production - we start shooting Friday - but I wanted to put up a simple question.

More and more over the next decade "films" will be shot on video and hard drive and will be projected much in the same way.  Does it make sense to call them films?

Pencil lead has no lead in it.

But there is a stigma to "film" vs. "movies."  In the movie-going vernacular "films" are movies to be respected and "movies" are a popcorn affair.  I don't know if the filmmaking contingent is ready to call their "film" a "movie."

Since most projects in the future will originate and finish digitally, will they become called "digitals"

"a digital by"

Are people who think about these things thinking too much?
