No need to swipe left and right mindlessly on your mobile phones for hours because we already got your back! We're spreading the Lomo-love the analogue way through a LomoKino film swap. As the matchmaker for this special project, we'll pair you up with a fellow Lomographer from across the world and ask you to shoot a LomoKino video that will showcase the merging of two distinct visions into one short film.

Interested in discovering who your perfect match is? Here are the mechanics of our little dating game:

  • To join this worldwide film swap project, sign up on this form until January 28, 2017.
  • We'll send a love letter to the selected first shooters that will include the address of their mystery partner. Pre-exposed film should be mailed by February 12, 2017 so your dates would receive them before Valentine's Day. Don't forget to leave a sweet note or two while you are at it!
  • All LomoKino movies should be emailed back to us by March 2, 2018. They will be collected in a special showcase which will also serve as the grand reveal of the pairs who made them!
  • All participants will get a Lomography Online Shop voucher worth 10 EUR plus 10 Piggy Points!

Are you up for a challenge? Don't be shy and step out of your shell. Sign up now and find your one true Lomography soulmate!

    This is so sweet!!
    It would be super nice if you do the same (but with regular film, 35mm and/or 120mm) for those of us who don't have a Lomokino :D
