Fujifilm has confirmed its next X Summit event will take place in New York City on September 8, 2022. Called Fujikina, the event is making a location shift from its traditional home in Tokyo, Japan. According to the company, this public event will showcase the power of image-making through a series of special exhibits of selected works from an emerging generation of photographers, filmmakers, and creators from all over the world.
“We are excited and honored to host Fujikina in New York City, which has such a rich history of showing Fujifilm’s support and celebration of the arts. We’re excited to make the city a big part of the experience for our guests,” Victor Ha, vice president, Electronic Imaging and Optical Devices, Fujifilm North America Corporation, says. “Demonstrating Fujifilm’s ongoing commitment to storytelling, Fujikina New York will be part touch-and-try, part education, and part exhibition — truly a festival for the image-making community and anyone interested the art of visual storytelling.”
The company also plans to host several photo walks led by Fujifilm’s photography experts, who will teach techniques for capturing various types of photos and be allowed to practice said techniques using loaned Fujifilm digital cameras and lenses. Fujikina is additionally taking place to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Fujifilm X-mount. In honor of the milestone, the company will showcase a special project that showcases imagery and stories from 10 women image-makers with diverse backgrounds and skill sets.
Fujikina is scheduled to take place at Glass House in New York City on September 10, 2022, from 10 AM until 7 PM. There is no cost associated with the event, and those interested can register on Fujifilm’s website.
