RFW starts tomorrow

Here’s what you need to know about joining the #RollFilmWeek celebration.

#RollFilmWeek begins in less than 24 hours! Join the global celebration on Instagram from July 22 through July 26. Please read these guidelines and pro tips before you post.

Tune in for Instagram features

Each evening, we’ll select some photos to feature on the @rollfilmweek account. Be sure to use the #rollfilmweek hashtag on your photos — that’s where we look for images to spotlight. (It’s fine if you tag us or mention us in your comments, but our notifications are overwhelming during Roll Film Week, so we only use the official hashtag when we’re curating daily features.) There’s no limit to the number of photos you can post, but we recommend two or three per day.

This week, Instagram features will be curated by @jessicarhibbard, @racheldjames, and @dirtykics.
