Our Mission

Students of Storytelling is Fujifilm’s opportunity to empower visual storytellers by emphasizing that craft and intention matter more than specifications and technology. We believe that telling meaningful stories must be the goal for any committed image maker. In achieving this, we will bring diverse voices to the surface and encourage photographers and filmmakers to have agency in sharing their experiences with the world.

The Artists Den Project

A partnership with Artists Den has given three young filmmakers an exclusive opportunity to participate in the creation of  an episode of Live from My Den, an on-going digital music series featuring some of the world’s top music talent, and learn first-hand how to tell someone else’s story through their own lens.
