We are still in a period of "Why go back to film? That's backwards!" mentality.
Perhaps it is because we have just outgrown the emulsion century, and have moved on towards the digital age.
Too soon to look back, yet?
In the future i believe there will still be film shooters, simply for the reason of nostalgia.
Similar to that of those who still believe in pens and papers when writing a story (even if a computer is beside you), or those who still keep a pocketwatch whereever they go instead of having a super precise digital watch.
