FILM Ferrania is restarting production for analog film in both still photo and motion picture formats.
FILM Ferrania was officially formed in Ferrania, Italy on July 23, 2013 by co-founders Nicola Baldini and Marco Pagni with the aim to build a new factory from the leftover parts of the old one, originally founded in 1923.
Through massive cooperation with the local government, FILM Ferrania currently has a facility, most of the necessary machinery and even a large stock of chemistry.
With all of this, we still have an enormous task ahead of us. We aim for nothing less than fundamentally changing the way you buy, use and process film today.
Most importantly, we aim to restore confidence in the future of analog film.
Our philosophy is simple:
We are people who love film, you are people who love film, and people have the power. So let's do this!

Behind every frame: our amazing team
The chemicals are studied and prepared by Corrado, Daniele and Danilo, then the film is coated by the magic hand of Ezio and finally finished by Renzo under the vigilant eye of Marco, who coordinates the entire process.
But this core R&D team is only the beginning of this new FILM Ferrania adventure; many other incredibly skilled former Ferrania employees are waiting on the bench, ready to jump into the game and create for you the best analog imaging experience.
Just joining the team is The Mystery American who contacted Nicola one day and asked very nicely if he could help get these products into people's cameras. Nicola said yes.
