Fotofilmic was founded in 2012 as a global film-photography publication and curation platform dedicated to emerging and unknown photo talents attached to film worldwide. FOTOFILMIC’15 is the 3rd edition of FotoFilmic’s annual and global film photography competition.
In the global context of digital technology FotoFilmic reflects an ongoing transformative understanding of Film Photography as a distinct fine art medium and practice within contemporary photography. While most film shooters are presently found in academic art departments pursing advanced degrees, FotoFilmic’s core intention is to open wide the publication doors of contemporary film photography to all talented amateurs without restriction of ages or location that demonstrate high quality of execution and creative envisioning.
For its 3rd iteration FotoFilmic is excited to expand its global film photography reach into America’s East Coast and Asia! FotoFilmic’15 is pleased to announce new partnerships with two prominent photography exhibitors in Manhattan, New York and the Gangnam District in Seoul, two of the world’s most effervescent art and cultural centers, to bring Contemporary Film Photography as a whole into a new highly international East-West focus!
