Developing Super 8mm film

Post by Michael Gough »

At a recent Festival I was approached by someone with a 30 year old cartridge of E160, Kodak Ektachrome Super 8mm movie film type A, made in USA.

Can anyone help him with details of where to get it developed?

The obvious choice is the Widescreen Centre. They offer the service but it should be more widely available because Super-8mm is still in use. Many students like it. ... ision.html

You and Linda go to so many festivals this could have happened anywhere, but I know you were recently in the North West which is a hotbed of cine people. The team at Bury Club specialise in the stuff with sprocket holes. I am sure they could help.

They also run the "Cine Is Alive" website

This includes a searchable database which lists 18 processors of 8mm in many countries. The UK ones in addition are

Widescreen Centre - see above (London)

Film Camera Kit - (London)

It probably needs a modified E6 process (modified mainly to remove the anti-halation backing).
Sounds obvious but ... have you tried asking Kodak? As they provide the chemicals they will know who processes it!
