Long Live Film | Film is Not Dead

Indie Film Lab

Indie Film Lab is a lab dedicated to photographers who still shoot film. Earlier this year they decided to take a road trip from Montgomery Alabama to Las Vegas Nevada, and they made a documentary about their trip.

“Film has soul. Film is a lifestyle” – Indie Film Lab

“Long Live Film” is a documentary of Indie Film Lab’s road trip, and during this trip they talk about why they shoot film. They have photographers who shoot weddings, lifestyle, and commercial photography talking about the cameras and films they love to use. It’s inspiring hearing how much they care about their photography, and how excited they get talking about film.

Film is Not Dead

If you’re interested in learning more about shooting film photography, Jonathan Canlas has a great book called “Film Is Not Dead: A Digital Photographer’s Guide to Shooting Film.” This book that goes over the best 35mm, medium format, and even polaroid cameras for people who are interested. “Film is Not Dead” also talks about the best films to use, and how to expose them to get the best results. This book is perfect for photographers who want to learn more and get started in film photography.

    Has started to shoot film again. For me its about what I like to call “slow photography”. When you are constrained on frames, you need to make sure that each counts.

    Yes, long live film

    Film! I don’t think I’ve used film since 1988. But it’s cool that people are keeping it alive :)
