On Wednesday 2.2.2022 starting at 4pm (Finnish time), as a part of the Opening Week of the first-ever Helsinki Darkroom Festival, the president of the Finnish Darkroom Association Katri Lassila is hosting two panel discussions with analog organisations and festivals around the world.

In the Analog Festivals Panel, representatives from analogueNOW!, Experimentalphotofestival, Revela’T and Rotlicht Festival come together to discuss the emergence of a number of festivals focused on analog photography in recent years. The panel will take a comparative look at the reasons for organising events and festivals around analog photography while keeping an eye on the future of the recently emerged rhizome of associations in the field.

In the All Things Analog Panel, Katri is joined by representatives from Analog Forever Magazine, CYAN, Kalamari Klub and Street Level Photoworks to discuss all things analog – publishing, exhibiting, running residency programs and of course operating darkrooms. The panel represents a multitude of perspectives, coming together to think about the robust possibilities for all things analog in the future.

The event will take place on Zoom, you will find the link on the festival’s website on the day of the event:
