    Not sure what film you are looking for, but if B&H has it, they now ship via purolator. Customs is collected at time of purchase so no surprises. I've bought from them with this method after having UPS charge $193 on a $403 order!

    I found a smoking pipe tobacco house in Chicago which is the oldest of USA and wanted 85 dollars postage for 50 grams of tobacco.

    I think cargo prices are the biggest obstacle for online sellers worldwide.

    I paid 60 dollars for Leica Mini and 60 dollars postage and it came to istanbul from ny in 3 days.

    I bought two books from alibris and they came with ship cargo in 4 months for 12 dollars.

    I think OPs best bet , buying from APUG and send with partial shipment by truck.

    But when you turn to China , 1 tons of cargo comes in 15 dollars.

    May be best way is to buy from Singapore , Hong Kong , Shangai with ship cargo , immensely cheap.

    May be Japanese Post is more reasonable because their money is cheaper.

    Short , try Japan. There are many active APUG members at Japan and contact with them.

    I think Umut is on to something. We need to buy enough in bulk to fill a cargo ship!
    Any volunteers for Captain?

    For some reason the theme from Gilligans's Island started going through my head :-)
