#filmfeb 2018

#Filmfeb was a fantastic initiative organised by Jason Avery on Twitter. Questions related to film photography are posted everyday for a month and the community answer using the relevant hashtag. It’s a great way to meet other film photographers, find out what they are up to and have some interesting discussions. I would highly recommend joining in (or at least just following the hashtag!), this month there were also prizes to won from Silberra Film and Japan Camera Hunter. Jason runs a film hashtag 3 times a year as #filmtober , #filmjune #filmfeb so make sure you follow him for future gatherings.

This blog post started out as a place to keep my posts to #filmfeb so I could come back to them easily next year and see what’s changed. But then I wanted to be able to ‘bookmark’ some other responses too for future reference, twitter does not make this easy to do! And now there’s this. My posts and a collection of some of my favourite community responses from #filmfeb 2018. Thanks again to Jason and everyone who participated. It’s been a blast.
