Sorry to rain on your parade but Freestyle's "Arista.EDU" line of film is inexpensive (not "cheap") repackaged Forte film from Hungary; not Efke film. You are correct in that their "Arista" brand film is from Ilford. Freestyle has had a close relationship with Ilford for 30 + years. I remember using their "Essex" brand VC paper which was from Ilford. Many, many years ago we used to shop at their small, cluttered store on Western Ave. in Los Angeles (Hollywood). Howard Tanger
