Lomography International made making movies on 35mm film a reality. The LomoKino Premiere 2012 is born as the first sample on the big screen of short films shot with the LomoKino, using completely analog techniques.

As you may know, this past 9th of April, we published the Lomokino Premiere rumble. Today, we want to make you a part of our whole project, and we’re telling you what this initiative is all about!

June 21th, 2012 will be a historical day for Lomography. The mythical Palafox Theater in Madrid will open its doors and throw a red carpet to welcome all of our friends, and eight renown professionals that will partake in this event.

We will collaborate with Jorge Dorado, the Esteban Alenda brothers, José Javier Pérez Prieto, Enrique Caruncho, Marc Vigil, Stefano Caprile, the Stop Motia collective, and El Cosmonauta.

Here’s a short description of who is who!

Jorge Dorado. Jorge Dorado is a Producer from Madrid with over 60 national and international awards. He’s been nominated several times for the Premio Goya, one of them for “La Guerra”, a short film shot in 35mm. If you want to see more of Jorge’s productions, visit his webpage.
