A look inside the Ilford factory

Founded in 1879 by Alfred Hugh Harman, Ilford specializes in black & white analog film, paper and chemistry products. An 18-minute documentary takes us to the heart of its Mobberley factory.

We present some of the faces behind our films as we visit different parts of our factory to see how 120 and 35mm black and white films are made.

From manufacturing emulsions to finishing, quality control, warehousing and distribution, we’ll take you behind the scenes at ILFORD Photo to showcase how your favorite black and white analog products are delivered to photographers around the world. .
