Pedigree and Pioneering Spirit
Filmlab was established in 2000 as a dynamic, modern and enterprising company, yet it benefits from unrivalled pedigree and expertise that emanate from many years of experience dating back to the earliest days of photography and cinematography. Many of the Company’s management and technical staff were key members of India’s first colour motion picture film processing laboratory. Read more about our historical roots.
