Expired Film Giveaway!

Edit 2: That’s it, all gone! Thanks to everyone, we shall get the 151 packages sent out as quickly as possible, with some tea of course! 😻

Edit: It all sold out within fifteen minutes. We will list the second half Monday morning 23rd March but it will likely go equally quickly! 


We have 428 free films to give away!


A little bit of background - a while ago a customer sold us her late husband's medium format equipment. She also mentioned that there were was some film in the fridge he never got around to using. She showed up the next day with a suitcase full. 🤯 She insisted that we have it for free - so rather than simply sell it for profit we have been looking for a way to pass it on as a worthwhile project or reason to distribute it.
We've got all sorts of variety, including Portra, Velvia, Tri-X, Gold, HP5, and more, but we've broken it down as follows:

120 Colour (172 Rolls)
120 Black and White (149 Rolls)
35mm Colour (71 Rolls)
35mm Black and White (13 Rolls)
620 Colour (14 Rolls)
Super 8 Colour (6 Reels, one reel free)
4x5 Black and White (3 Packs, one pack free)

Just pay £3.50 postage and you'll have three free rolls of film which might help you through the tough situation we're facing at the moment. It's not much, but maybe it will bring you a little enjoyment out of these strange days. 😺

It would be super awesome to create a gallery of photos from all this film, so once you've shot it, send us your best photos and we can feature our favourites in the coming weeks.
To give everyone a chance of getting a few free films, we will list half on the website now and half on Monday - that seems like the fairest way to do it!
Naturally this is a 'one per customer' deal, don't be a dick 🍆 - and apologies to all our overseas followers but it's UK only!
