    Well I have some fairly fresh ERA film (LF) that I bought last November.

    Some people may not have noticed this thread is in the B&W section.

    Not sure where it's actually made though.

    The list of black and white (as opposed to color) film manufacturers is quite long and it is probably hard to make a definitive list.

    I heard - but did not see by myself - they are newly labeled 'made in Japan'. If that is true there are not many choices.
    The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

    It is interesting that Matt at Ag says "new in production" and not new as in "new/old stock" So like you I wonder who makes it as well. I used to like Vista. As an Agfa product it had a different colour signature to either Kodak or Fuji. Quite muted but probably the most neutral colour neg of all.

    Good price as well

    They had films made by Efke, Agfa, Filmotec and Ilford, their papers were made by Agfa, Foma and Ilford. Chemistry was made by Amaloco, Calbe, Fuji-Hunt and many others. The least common denominator of that hodgepodge is that it's all remnants from the bargain rack of the manufacturers. The only additional value are a new label, a fancy name and an excessive amount of impossible promises about the benefits. That might explain their extremely sort product cycles and numerous recall actions for faulty products.
