Film Never Die as the name suggests is a photography shop & cafe located at the Spencer St end of Bourke St, selling all things analogue. So if your passionate about photography and film then this is the ultimate place to spend your weekends.
Founded by Gary Wong and his partner Wei Wei, Film Never Die is the shared vision of a small team of photographers and artists working in Melbourne with a mission to foster community of photography.
Dust off and bring in your Polaroid and film cameras or if you don't have one you can pick up a Lomography camera, Polaroid or medium format Hasselbalds.. these guys have it all. I truly felt like a kid in a lolly shop, picking up and eyeing off the range of camera's and films available.
There is also a cafe and gallery on site. Gary is also a great barrista, providing coffee or chai just before any workshop or event!
Film never Die offer a range pf photography workshops ranging from Introduction classes to more advanced and technical ones like multiple exposure.
Once a month they run photography walks around the CBD. Meeting up at the Film never Die cafe located on level 2, usually an hour before, sipping a coffee and charging up batteries before heading off exploring different areas of the city.
Walks are approximately 3 hours and what a great way to get fit, see Melbourne and spend the afternoon meeting new people. New comers are always welcome!
