Meet one of our Cannes insiders, young Canadian filmmaker Virginie Bélanger. She's shooting her film festival experience using the LomoKino and we can't wait for its premiere! While we're waiting for the final cut, check out some of her behind-the-scenes photos from the 65th Cannes Film Festival!
Here’s a short and sweet note from Virginie:
What I love the most about Cannes is that during the festival, the whole city and everybody that invades it lives and breathes cinema. It’s as if our cinephile hearts beat to the rhythm of our love for film and the avatars of our passion are everywhere around us. And it kind of feels like Heaven for this film lover.
Cannes’ beauty is incommensurable and I am having a great time shooting a little video with the ever so awesome LomoKino and sharing pictures with you through an analog filter!
Lomography has teamed up with movie platform MUBI to produce its first cinematic collaboration, the very first clone of the LomoKino: the LomoKino MUBI Edition. Every LomoKino MUBI Edition comes with a free one month subscription to MUBI and a film strip from Palme D’Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s LomoKino movie Ashes.
Shufi had been browsing the website for inspiration for years before finally she finally created her own LomoHome.

While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.

Her choice of soak for her photographic series "Float On" may not be everybody's cup of tea, but it can't be denied that something so unique deserves a spot in the limelight. During a recent chat with Brigette Bloom, the outlandishly experimental film photographer eagerly shared her inspiration for the series, process (a tipster!), and what she thought of people's reactions over her work, among other things. Check out the exclusive interview after the cut!
Chris Goodacre has been shooting on film since the late 1970s. At the same time, he also took interest in building an artillery of analog weapons. In this interview, he shares an extensive list of his collection and the fantastic story that come with each of his cameras.
