Join B&H for Film Photo Week at These Live Events


Welcome to B&H's Film Photo Week! Running from February 7-12, 2021 across all of B&H's channels will be loads of new content and events about film photography. You'll find invigorating chats with working photographers who still haven't put away their film cameras, tutorials to make the most of that camera in your closet, and even some opinions on how film works in contemporary photography workflows.

Find us on social media at #BHFilmPhotoWeek to talk about all things film. Share which classic cameras you love, talk up the films you prefer, or even learn how to get started developing your own film. We're also running a contest on Instagram you'll want to check out.
