What you need to use is a variable speed projector, unless you have a telecine ($$$) machine.
As you project the image, check your viewfinder as you adjust the projector’s speed until the flicker disappears. The captured film will play back a bit slower but your editing software can compensate for that. You’ll want to project the image so it’s only about 6″ – 8″ across. And try different “screens” to see which gives you the best results. I used a plain sheet of #92 white paper taped to the wall. The images were crisper on that than on the silver screen I was using. Good Luck.
