What is the figure of speech here?

Dictionary.com defines celluloid as

of or involving motion pictures

The boots have been immortalised on celluloid in her latest film, Strictly Sinatra, directed by Peter Capaldi.


I was wondering if this constitutes some figure of speech?


That is metonymy


the substitution of the name of an attribute or adjunct for that of the thing meant, for example suit for business executive, or the turf for horse racing.
