    I'm gathering names and contact information of film labs that are still in business, plan to stay in business, still process E-6, C-41 and Black and White films. Can you help me?
    I need names, contact information and who to talk to. I will share this once I get all that I can get.

    OK, I'll start, and from personal experience, the E-6 and C-41 are about as good as it gets with A&I:

    No, please don't. The OP mentioned:
    So, addresses outside the USA are also welcome.
    I assume you are mostly looking for pro-labs and not the highstreet 1-hour photo lab? Because otherwise you would have such a big list...

    The pro lab in my area, C-41 only, unfortunately:
    www.deafdruk.nl in Breda, the Netherlands.

    In the UK I always use Metro Colour Lab, they offer superb results and a great service. E6, C41, not sure about B&W as I develop my own:

    In Birmingham UK:

    As already mentioned:
    www.metrocolourlab.com

    The owner of Metro has the rather fitting registration on his Audi: E6 LAB

    However, my preference is for Palm Laboratory in Digbeth, Birmingham (near the bus station). They offer a full B+W, E6, C-41, Hand colour printing, Hand B+W printing, Lambda digital up to 50" wide; LF up to 8X10 processing etc.

    www.palmlabs.co.uk

    You could also try Colab, based in nearby Coventry - thay also offer all the services:

    www.colab.com

    Also, if people could take the time to ad their labs to the APUG directory, that would be great. I already added some of mine, but I have another meeting to run to right now.

    Here's the link: http://www.apug.org/portal/?id_category=262

    I live in Sacramento and use Cox Black and White Lab. Film development and contact sheets are always ready the next day. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

    I've no direct experience, but a friend I assisted was happy with the E6 work done by AGX Imaging. I think the shop is exclusively E6 though.
