Resources for Film Preservation and Transfers:

Please note, I cannot make any first-hand recommendations of these resources.

8mm and 16mm consumer transfers: The good folks at www.homemovieday.com have a page of transfer resources.

8mm and 16mm professional transfers: VideoMedia (also 9.5mm), Montreal — Exclusive Film and Video, Toronto — Little Film (Brodsky & Treadway), Greater Boston area — Pro8mm, Burbank, California — Shai Drori, Israel (8, 9.5, 16, & 35 mm)

Film sound specialists: Chace Productions, Burbank — Chicago Audio Works (312) 337 8282 — DuArt Film and Video, New York

Henry Wilhelm’s Wilhelm Imaging Research site also has his landmark 1993 book The Permanence and Care of Color Photographs: Traditional and Digital Color Prints, Color Negatives, Slides, and Motion Pictures available as an 80 MB PDF. I’ve had the book since it first came out.

The Image Permanence Institute provides resources and information about film preservation.

The closure of the last Kodachrome processing line at the end of 2010 caused me to research options for processing obsolete still and motion picture films. I do not have any personal experience with any of these, but here are a few:
Film Rescue International, Indian Head, SK, Canada — Rapid Photo Imaging Center, Clarks Summit, PA, USA — Rocky Mountain Film Laboratory, Aurora, CO, USA — Process C22, Margate, UK
