FotoFilmic was founded in 2012 in Vancouver, Canada by VNB as a global film-photography publication and curation platform dedicated to emerging and unknown photo talents attached to the film medium worldwide. In 2015 in the midst of its 3rd Global Competition edition FotoFilmic was successfully incorporated as a Canadian non-profit organization known as The FotoFilmic Foundation.
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.
FotoFilmic organizes each year a global juried film photography CALL FOR ENTRIES culminating in an INTERNATIONAL TRAVELING EXHBITION open to all ages and nationalities. Unique in its scope and genre and presently in its 3rd edition, the FotoFilmic Competition aims at bringing the entire world community of photographers attached to film and preceding historical processes closer together in an effort to both promote emerging talent and help redefine the artistic significance of the medium’s contemporary practices.
