The third On Photography: Film Festival will run from September 18 to 20 September 2015, during the Dutch Week of Photography, initiated by FOAM and The Netherlands Fotomuseum. Screenings will be held at Cinema Het Ketelhuis adjacent to the Amsterdam's Unseen Photo Fair at the Westergasterrein on Friday and Saturday. For 24 hours on Sunday, the festival will make 2-3 hours of films on photography available online for free. The selected films exhibit the diversity of photography and its practitioners, raise questions and provoke discussion of educational value.

The first OP-Festival took place in 2013 and reached viewers in 79 countries. The success of the second run in 2014 was the impetus to create an offline component this year. The festival is curated by Barbera Brakel and Erica Mc Donald.

Curator Barbera Brakel is a Dutch independent photo historian. She produces photographic events, curates exhibitions and works as in photo editor for newspapers, magazines, blogs and (corporate) archives. Co-curator Erica McDonald is a photographer and educator based in NYC. She founded DEVELOP Photo to provide resources for the enrichment of the photojournalism, fine art and documentary photography community. Her photography is regularly commissioned for magazines nationally and internationally and has been exhibited worldwide.
