    lick your finger, it'll stick to the emulsion side of any film.

    Put a drop of fixer on each side. If something happens bingo, thats the side.

    The side that looks glossy blue-black in the red light is the base side. The side that looks matte tan is the emulsion side. The tan side should face up when printing, or tan side to tan side when contacting.
