Starting at 1.30pm CEST this Friday, viewers will be treated to a behind the scenes tour of the former Polaroid factory via the new video streaming app, Periscope, which will give an insight to key film development processes and a glimpse into how Impossible instant films are made.

Located in Enschede, Netherlands the iconic factory was the last standing Polaroid factory, with Impossible obtaining it in 2008 to begin their own journey to save instant film.

The hottest streaming tool of the moment, Periscope is designed to give users the tools to broadcast their experiences via live video streaming.
