    Just because you and I happen to like film does not mean "make and sell film" has been written on stone tablets and given to Moses.
    There is a market. No need for Moses to prove it to us, thank you.

    I am sure Ilford is laughing their ass off at the "terminal decline" comment.

    Kodak Alaris is not in any financial trouble at all. They are a new company with no legacy costs of any kind. They did not emerge from bankruptcy.

    I'll give you 3 guesses where their profits come from.

    It's been one year and I haven't seen any new films from Fuji or Ilford either both have discontinued some products though the later wants to at least reintroduce the product they had to discontinue nevertheless they haven't brought any new filmproducts to the market either.

    This site really has become a let's bash Kodak forum even though Kodak still makes more films than any other film mfg. they are the bad guys.

    I think you might just be looking in the wrong places, ie. Linkedin. Kodak Alaris has been engaging with the film community on Twitter and they also run a blog that features quite a bit of film stuff. Try checking out their twitter account or their 1000 words blog.

    That blog has been taken over from Kodak. So it is no new initiative.

    It is nice to see they are engaging with the photographic community. However, when trying to sell and promote a product, we should not have to find the advertising, it should find us.
