Film Ferrania is Alive!

By Paul McKay

After several years of hard work, multiple set-backs and challenges, Film Ferrania's hard work has paid off and the first batch of P30 35mm film is available to buy in Europe!


Why is this so exciting?

Those of you who have followed the trials and tribulations of Nicola Baldini, Dave Bias and Marco Pagni will know just how long this moment has been in-the-making. They are part of the Ferrania team who have taken the original Italian factory from disuse and ruin to producing fresh photographic film within the past decade.

I would highly encourage you to spend some time on their website's blog - reading the articles and seeing the photos as they went from zero to film in 2016 having spent years raising funds, gathering the team and fixing the machinery.
