No ifs - a film should invariably be cleaned before printing or transfer
(in the lab if not in the telecine facility). Loose dirt isn't an issue.
If dirt is stuck on, then a wet gate won't remove it, and (as I said
before) can't make it invisible. Ultrasonic or buffer cleaning is a bit
more likely to remove this dirt.
All efforts to remove blemishes this way are more time and cost
effective than routinely dust-busting or spotting the resultant transfer
in the on-line suite.
