    From the FSU, you could look for Slavich films and glass plates. You can often find the glass plates from suppliers of holography materials. I don't know if J&C carries anything from Slavich, but you might try retrophotographics.co.uk or fotoimpex.de. You can also purchase directly from their website--www.slavich.com

    You can always try eBay. Usually there are one or two eBay listings for SVEMA film (Ukrainian).

    FWIW, I bought a few boxes of past-date (by two months, three months by the time I got it) Svema FN64 film from the seller to whom Tom refers. I've only shot one "real" roll of it, developed in Rodinal 1:25 for 6:15 at 20C. I also tried a test roll in various developers to get some idea of times in other developers, and although I haven't tried these specific times, I guesstimate 11:00-11:30 in XTOL 1:1 or 11:00-12:00 in PC-Glycol 1:1:48 should get you in the right ballpark.

    Overall, I liked the results. The film is a bit grainy for its speed, at least in Rodinal, but it's not as grainy as, say, Efke KB100. The grain's got a good "feel" to it; it reminds me a bit of Fomapan 400, although it's not as grainy as that.

    FWIW, the film comes in reusable plastic cassettes. They aren't DX coded, though.

    Sorry, I just glimpsed at the question and overlooked the word "excluding".
    The links I provided sell exactly the films he was spesifically not looking for :-|
