How We Got Started

With the age of Digital Photography, more and more companies recently have begun scaling back their support for the film medium merely because of economics.

Yet, despite recent advances in digital photography … film quality and resolution has not stood idle and has continued to advance, with a look that digital can only hope to imitate through the use of expensive time-consuming digital rendering. That is why, many film directors, cinematographers, independent filmmakers and photographers (both amateur and professional) today, still prefer to shoot directly on film.  Kodak also has continued to expand their line of photographic film stocks reintroducing Ektachrome 100D reversal film in both Super 8mm, 16mm and 35mm.  And the public response has been tremendous!  Select theaters across the nation also continue to re-install their film projectors back for special 35mm and 70mm theatrical engagements as the demand by film enthusiasts have clamored for a return to traditional high quality film projection. The Hateful Eight, Dunkirk, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Phantom Thread, Ready Player One, Lawrence of Arabia, 2001, A Space Odyssey and now Roma has become the latest film to join the special 70mm engagements astounding film audiences across the nation.  But the film revolution hasn't stopped there.  Production of new Super 8mm cameras has also resumed as more new filmmakers are rediscovering the beauty, clarity and incredible color only film photography can bring. So while many film chains, retailers and prestigious film suppliers in Hollywood are slowly getting out of film, Film Forever Motion Picture and Editorial Supply has made a firm commitment to increase its presence to fill that void and preserve film photography for the future.

Our inventory has grown from film leader and motion picture reels to a variety of professional 16mm and Super 8mm film stocks, film projectors, editorial equipment and cameras. We also support 35mm and 70mm upon request.  Entering our 8th Year, Film Forever continues to grow as more and more colleges, universities, aspiring young filmmakers, production companies, photographers and consumers both domestically and world-wide have made Film Forever MPE their source for everything film.  With a catalog that continues to grow we are also proud to announce that every 'New' product Film Forever now carries is 'Made in the USA!'  Yes, the good old days are indeed making a come back!
