List of All Photochemical Film Labs
Operating in the World Today

As a resource for FIAF affiliates and beyond, FIAF has been working on consolidating and adding to various existing lists of film laboratories still in operation around the world with all relevant contact information, websites, country and when relevant, the formats supported. The focus of the updated list is primarily photochemical labs. This list includes commercial film labs, film archives' in-house labs, and artist-run labs. To the best of our knowledge, this list is accurate as of 1 November 2015.

This list is the result of a consolidation and revision of data from previous similar efforts by FIAF (2013 film lab survey), AMIA's Film Advocacy Task Force, Mick Newnham (Australia National Film and Sound Archive), Andrew Oran (Fotokem), Christian Richter (Kodak), and the many FIAF affiliates who responded to our request for updated information on lab closures.

Should you hear about the closure of a lab included in this list, please let us know by emailing the FIAF Secretariat, so that we can update the list as quickly as possible.

A full list of artist-run labs can be found on the filmlabs.org website.
