Kodak on Twitter, Oct 11th, 2022: We’re hiring to keep up with demand for 35mm film which has exploded over the past few years. “Over the last 18 months we’ve hired over 300 people, and we’re looking to hire more.” –Nagraj Bokinkere, VP of Film Manufacturing at Kodak.

Kodak’s film manufacturing division is growing and hiring new employees. Consumer demand for 35 mm film has exploded over the past few years. According to Nagraj Bokinkere, VP of film manufacturing, Kodak’s strategy to be “the last company standing in color films, both consumer and motion picture, is paying dividends.”

“Our film finishing area for example we have grown from a five days a week, single shift operation a few years back. To last year, we were three shifts, five days a week and now we are a 24/7 operation.”
