In 2013, the photographic film production line was acquired by the new company FILM Ferrania s.r.l. which took over some of Ferrania's manufacturing equipment and buildings, as well as a number of those Ferrania technicians laid off in 2012. FILM Ferrania inherited the historic brand Ferrania to launch analog products suitable for the actual needs of the cine/photo market. Ferrania's film production is going to start again in early 2014, with FILM Ferrania having announced in 2013 to re-start production of Solaris FG-100 Plus color negative film and Scotch Chrome 100 color slide film in a variety of formats, with a potential emphasis on cine film.
Nicola Baldini, chief of the new company, in an interview does not rule out the possibility of restart the production of black and white films, like the historical Ferrania Pancro 30.
On November 19, 2013 Film Ferrania presented the main core of production and R&D. It is formed by eight people, with year of experience in the field. In the company's website are visible their names, biography and photos.
