X-Rite’s Festival of Color returns!

Now in its fifth year, the Festival of Color celebrates the importance of digital colour management for filmmakers and is held in the UK, France and Spain. X-Rite's ambassadors are on hand to explain how colour works and how to sort out your colour workflow from camera to monitor.

The press release says:

XP Distribution, the specialist distributor for X-Rite’s range of colour management products aimed at the photographic and video markets launches its 2017 Annual Festival of Color with a series of events, special offers and free laptop

helping photographers and video-makers get the best colour results possible every single time. The Festival of Color will support both skilled and new photographers or video-makers to gain valuable insight on how to understand colour management and make it work for them.
