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.
