    There is a company that sells "remainders" of 16mm and 35mm movie film. The have locations in NYC and LA. Can't remember the name though; perhaps someone else knows. IIRC, they sell it by the foot.

    As you can see, they have 400ft. and 1000ft. rolls of Plus-X and Double-X (as well as colour stock, of course) and the price can't be beat. I ordered 400ft. of Plus-X for my P/D project and have gone through about half of it so far. BTW: I had the film on my desk within 3 hours of calling them.

    I'm stunned that I'm the only one who keeps mentioning it.
    This is the same stuff that we use in a 135 format camera? And is a special bulk loader required?

    Found it: http://www.filmemporium.com/

    But prices don't look all the great to me (compared to 100' rolls at freestyle).

    No, Viri. A bulk loader is not required. You must cut and spool the film by feel in the dark. I have bulk loaded for going on fifty years and have never owned a bulk loader.

    Also, keep an eye on eBay for bulk deals on expired or otherwise "questionable" film...

    Here's 200 rolls of 24 exposure c-41 B&W for $199 ($1.04/roll, including shipping)

    They seem to insinuate that it's respooled XP2 (and maybe it is...there can't be too many other c41 B&W films produced in EU). I probably wouldn't go out shooting weddings on the stuff, but it might work for something like this.

    No the motion picture B&W stock does not have remjet that you have to remove.

    Good luck finding short ends...I've had a standing order in at Certified Film for over a year now...it's like an urban myth. You can get what you need, same day, for 0.35 per foot. If that's not the best price, then it is within pennies of you best.

    Freestyle sells for 0.24 per foot in 100ft rolls of Legacy Pro 100. That's Fuji Neopan Acros.

    Okay, that is cheaper. Probably not for me, with duty & shipping.

    There's no duty on film in Canada. You'll pay shipping plus applicable sales taxes.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
