Reulos, Goudeau & Co. invent Mirographe, a 21 mm amateur format.
The Lumière Brothers premiere their new Lumiere Wide format for the 1900 World Fair. At 75 mm wide, it has held the record for over 100 years as the widest format yet developed.
Raoul Grimoin-Sanson also creates a sensation at the 1900 World Fair with his multi-projector Cinéorama spectacle, which uses ten 70 mm projectors to create a simulated 360-degree balloon ride over Paris. The exhibit is closed before it formally opens, however, due to legitimate health and safety concerns regarding the heat of the combined projectors ons, and releases the format as La Petite.
Army Life, a documentary directed by Robert W. Paul on the training techniques of British soldiers. Most of it is currently lost. It was one of the oldest proto-feature films (20 short-films that when combined could have been seen as a feature film. Combined together it was originally over an hour in length, and over two hours when combined with a lecture and slides.).
