Our Cannes correspondent Virginie Bélanger just got back to her hometown and is busy working on her LomoKino movie from the film festival. Take a behind-the-scenes look at the analogue flick shoot here. We can't wait to see the old school video!
Like I had told you previously, Lomography had asked me to make a little video of my trip to Cannes with their new LomoKino, a super 35 film camera. I was really excited to do so and got a few friends to collaborate on helping me make the video. I still have to develop the film, scan it and then edit the video but in the mean time I wanted to share a few “behind the scenes” shots with you. I’ll be back very soon with much more from the festival :)
We can’t wait to see the final Cannes cut! Browse the Magazine for more articles on the 65th Cannes Film Festival which ran from May 16 – 27.
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.
With the 68th Cannes Film Festival kicking off today we thought we'd hold our very own film screening right here featuring, in no particular order, some of the best, well-crafted LomoKino videos by our fellow lomographers in the community. From documentary-like shorts to horror, comedy, romance, action, the surreal, and everything in between, we've got you covered. Bring out the popcorn!
Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires a certain amount of discipline. For it to be coherent, one must keep his focus throughout the entire process - from shooting the scenes to editing the clips. With that, we are truly grateful for the effort that these lomographers put into making these LomoKino movies.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.

I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
