For FFF, it was important to show demonstration films made by FUJIFILM Japan and FUJIFILM USA with a “French touch” to further impress the international panel of directors of photography.
The presentation proceeded with a detailed explanation of the new ETERNA Vivid 500 film. The event was a great success as the presentation was able to provide guests with specific technical and quality information about the new ETERNA film. Guests were also delighted by the demo films and by the detailed explanations of the film characteristics, especially the fine granularity and the deep black hues.
The launch concluded with cocktails to finish the evening, where many guests expressed their appreciation of the detailed explanations of the new ETERNA film's technical qualities.
