Attn: Celluloid lovers. Not an April Fool's–– film is back in the Big Apple! When New York's last full service motion picture lab closed several years ago, many feared it might mark the death of traditional celluloid in the city. But some exciting news for film lovers–– this spring, Kodak will open a new motion picture lab of their own in Long Island City.
On Saturday, April 1st, NYFVC members will get the first special behind-the-scenes tour of this brand-new facility as it is being built.
Whether you are cinematographer, a producer interested in shooting on film, a preservationist, an archivist, or simply a film fan interested in how the lab process works, this pre-opening tour is an exciting opportunity to meet the Kodak team and see how the celluloid magic happens.
Guiding the tour will be Anthony Landano, the Lab Manager, and his team at the new facility.
- When: Saturday, April 1, 2017, 11am
- Where: 37-18 Northern Boulevard, LIC ( R, M train to 36th Street, 1 block away). Meet in the building lobby.
After the tour, we will gather at Coffeed (same address) for food and to continue the conversation.
