“Long Live Film” documentary explores the continuing fascination with analog photography

As you might guess from its name, Indie Film Lab is a small film lab based in Montgomery, AL. The lab has teamed up with the folks at Kodak (now Kodak Alaris) to put together a documentary looking at why photographers still shoot film. The documentary is called "Long Live Film," and while we don't know when it'll come out, it looks like it'll be fantastic when it does.

The only other information we were able to gather about the project comes from the Indie Film Lab's Facebook page, where it says:

"Earlier this year, Indie Film Lab partnered up with Kodak to hit the road and talk to photographers about why they still love and shoot film. Here is a trailer for a short documentary all about film, those who shoot it and why they do. Enjoy and keep an eye out for the full length later this year!"

Kodak Alaris and the Indie Film Lab seem to have close ties, and the lab has been profiled on Kodak's site before. Hopefully we'll see the finished footage sooner rather than later, as it's always heartening to hear from people out there who still love film.
