Hi!
Ive been searching around a little, but cant find anyone that prints 16mm features or S8mm for that sake, trailers exist but i'm not interested in that.

What title are you looking for?
It has been said that CARS (2006) was the last legal 16mm feature printed.

I have heard private rumors later titles have been printed legally in 16mm to fulfill certain obligations and contracts...however none have surfaced for sale so it must remain a rumor until one such print can be had.

Hello Thor,you can still get S/8 features printed in Germany as I
understand, any feature you want,but they are very expensive.
More details can be got from Classic Home Cinema,who will import
them for you.As for 16mm I don't think any of these are being
printed now as the hire libraries are all gone.

Thor, the prices are quite variable, depending on film length, stock, if you want it striped or not etc.

Usually, a brand new Super 8 feature today comes at around 400-800 € (i området rundt 5-6000 kroner) of the ones I've seen.

It certainly won't! I only own one "expensive" feature, and that's Ice Age, which I've dubbed into Norwegian and respooled unto bigger reels, and that one has as far as I know increased in value since I procured it around two years ago [Smile]

I found extremely difficult to get a list of new super 8 and 16mm new prints and prices from Germany or USA, don´t mind. Even after buying one of them the last months, and paying that money. So PLEASE, if someone want to share their list with me, please send it to me at;
arri16bleq@yahoo.es
Thanks.
Pd; I manage to buy it with the help of another buyer who is still waiting and answer for buying again. [Frown]

Regarding new 16mm features, I believe Classic Home Cinema have been able to offer a very small number of their releases on 16mm but prices can be twice what you would pay for Super 8.

Further research on the declining area of 16mm hire brought to light that a still-operating library in Australia has a few titles as recent as 2007 that can be hired, but users may have to be in Australia. So my guess is that these are the most recent 16mm releases viewable anywhere in the world, unless somewhere like India has 16mm distribution that has kept going for longer,

New prints in 16mm have pretty much gone the way of cassette and 8-track audio. Rental companies that offered 16mm prints have pretty much sold and/or destroyed all their inventory being that digital projection is now the medium institutions now utilize. With no new film equipment being manufactured in the 8mm and 16mm gauges there doesn't seem to be any just cause for duplicating prints. Even 35mm is predicted to be forced into obsolesence over the next few years. Most theatres are being downloaded movies onto a server and then digitally projected from the booth. This is how 3-D is shown nowadays.
