We are Brooklyn Instant Film Initiative.

 From our HQ based in Brooklyn, New York, we're increasing the accessibility of specialty camera films in New York City and the northeast region. We've carefully curated a selection of instant film, 35mm film and 120 film types, making them readily available in our online store. All orders placed by 4:00 PM EDT Monday - Friday will ship same day via your selected delivery method. All orders are eligible for 2-3 day shipping anywhere in the US as well as same day delivery in NYC and next day delivery to the northeast region. Come visit our site, ask a question or two, and buy film. We’ll add magazines and photo books to our shop shortly!


About Us

Launched Summer 2018, Brooklyn Instant Film Initiative is a camera film retailer. Dreamt up one fall afternoon by film photography enthusiasts, a logistics specialist and avid cyclists. Our team has years of experience shooting a variety of film formats and getting things from Point A to Point B. We started with a simple idea; source film types which are exciting, those that make photography a bit more accessible and those that tend to be harder to find, making them immediately available to northeastern photographers, NYC and Brooklyn in particular. Our aim is to support the continuation of film photography, bolstering image making communities as well as film production.
