Quite true..the average 35mm theatrical print is about 12,000 ft. long. Couple that with a print order of between 100 and 2000 prints of each film, amounts to quite a bit of film. I would imagine that Agfa Gevaert has more of a market in Europe and India for its release print stock. At one time (back in the 1980's) their release print stock was more stable and had lower fade than the then-current Kodak stock. I think Kodak now surpasses them in fade-resistance. This fade resistance was more important in the circulating library type of application for educational and training films in 16mm where a print would be used for years.
