    A freezer can be defrosted in 1 hour or so, without causing stress to it, by unplugging it from the electricity plug, emptying it (I normally put the content in a pic-nic thermic bag with "synthetic ice" inside, the blue bricks), putting a fan in front of it which will blow air at ambient temperature into it. Put some cloth on its base to avoid all the melted water to go to the floor. Easy and fast.

    I keep most o my film in a freezer and a few rolls in the fridge.

    As for use it don't freeze it, well I've got several good deals on a dozen or more rolls of near expires or just expired at super cheap prices and I'm not gonna shoot a hundred rolls in quick time so in the freezer it goes and gets used as fast as I shoot it.
    Next time I see 20 rolls of Sensia for $2 a roll I'll jump on it and freeze it like last time!

    Before I do something stupid, I thought I would ask the dumb question.

    We have a vacuum sealer here, and I wondered if putting film in a vac bag and sealing it before it went in the freezer would be a good idea? Would the vacuum hurt the film? Hate to have nice dry film that is all messed up from being in a vacuum. (worried about air bubbles and swelling etc.)

    I don't know about the potential harm this can cause, but I see no benefit either. Vacuum sealing is good for cheese and the like because it takes away air and so it also drastically cuts the bacterial charge around the cheese. If you freeze (cheese or film) bacteria will be frozen in any case and will do no harm for a long time. Heat is the source problem for film, rather than fridge mould. In any case your film should be in a sealed container and not come in contact with the fridge - or freezer - air.

    Guys almost all film will put up with reasonable handling in a freezer. Yes maybe not the best idea to store free rolls but at the same time they don't need to be vacuum sealed or anything of that nature. It won't hurt if you do either. But it's not as if you pull a roll out and a bunch of water immediately condenses inside the canister. One just wants to reduce the effects of condensation.

    Even keeping boxed roll film in there is good enough for most cases.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
