Kodak has a directory of transfer facilities, with information on services offered provided by each vendor:

At least it gives you a list of contact information, to call around for services and a quote.

The Lab at Moving Images 212.953.6999 has been trying to eat DuArt's lunch for the past few years. And I think it's working. Great service, prices usually beat DuArt and excellent results.

good luck

I second that! Rick and Dom are fantastic and all the staff there really care about your project, student short or polished feature, but it's now The Lab @ Postworks.

I'd call Metropolis Film labs in NY.
He wont shaft you with a minimum charge, AND....
you're getting 2K or 3K scans for the same price if you
went to the others mentioned above. (which only gives
you SD, unless you want to pay for their Hidef prices,
which is actually less resolution than 2K.)

you can get your 16footage back either as image files or .mov
or other on a hard drive.
I'm sold on goin to him, his name is Jack. best price I've
found in US. either that or BonoLabs.
