Tomorrow is Film Photography Day!
Lomo created Film Photography Day to celebrate analogue! My colleague, Lars Fiedler, over in Germany chatted with Lomo and we are happy to support the day with Kodak film!
April 12 will be filled with parties, events and workshops across the world. You can search for or start your own Film Photography Day celebration using Meetup. Lomo even provided a downloadable party kit! We have sent Kodak film to Lomo to include in their “Analogue Goodie Packs” they are sending out to events with more than 30 participants.
For those of you that can’t make it to a meetup, don’t worry! We have something planned!
Tomorrow, Friday, April 12 we have enlisted photographers around the world to give away Kodak film on Twitter for 12 hours!
Each photographer has one Kodak film goody bag to give away. It is an assortment of 12 different kinds and formats. Each person will have their own way to enter. You have one hour to enter for each photographer and they will announce the winner at the end of the hour.

As for us here in Rochester, we are having a Film Photography Day meet-up too! Hosted by the fine folks at Hanlon Fiske Studio, we will get together to look at photos we have all taken and enjoy some analogue camaraderie.
I am taking prints of these photos I shot on Kodak film in the abandoned Rochester Subway.
I hope everyone has big plans for this year’s Film Photography Day!
