    Hi Helen,

    Thanks for the welcome, I'm not a cinematographer, tho, just a hobbiyst filmmaker. Yes, 5239 was available in 35mm. Buffalo '66 used it straight (VNF) and Clockers used it cross processed. Bono used to offer processing for 35mm VNF on their price list. 35mm VNF was a SO item originally manufactured to film missle launches. I used 7250 VNF extensively I'll definitely miss that.

    I'd seen the sad news about the end of the line for all VNF-type reversal, but I can't remember it being available in 35 mm anyway. Was it?

    Best,

    Wolfram,

    Try FilmXchange www.filmxchange.de

    In the UK there's also 'The Film Game'
    8 Beresford Ave
    Middlesex
    Telephone: +44 20 87954040
    (still in business? not sure)


    and FSC Blanx:
    70 Wardour Street
    London
    Telephone: +44 20 74942244

    Marjorie Clayton, the photographer, used to deal with the short ends and recans at FSC Blanx, she may still work there. I think that her work was in B&W magazine (UK) a few months ago.

    (Rant: Visualnet has to be one of the most annoying resources in the movie industry. A Google search returns heaps of visualnet hits, but the contact information provided by them doesn't include websites for those companies that have them. How lame is that?)

    Short ends and recans can be a bit of an uncertain business. You can also try your local Kodak sales office for 'odd lengths'. Kodak and Fuji also offer generous discounts for those of you who are students. I'm not sure how common this is, but Kodak do give away bagfuls of hand-loaded cassettes of film for testing. They may be influenced by how much film you are likely to buy, of course...

    Best,
    Helen

    "Short ends and recans can be a bit of an uncertain business."

    Yes, I have tried Film Emporium Inc. 274 Madison Avenue New York, NY 10016 numerous time looking for B&W film ends, to no avail. They never have what I want and no system of notification or backlog for when they get some in. I guess I'll keep shooting what I have.
