Hi, Planning a 2 month trip back to South India to do some documentary production work on 2 ideas I'm still working on, and wonder what anyone thinks or know about buying & processing film stock from/in India.

I notice that Kodak has accredited labs, but they're not really near where I'll be. So I would have to order film from them which has to be shipped by mail & then I'll mail exposed film to them for development. I haven't found anything near Bangalore which is the nearest city to me, still 3 hours away.


Cinelabs in Mumbai looks the best. I've emailed them for film availability and lab fees but I haven't gotten response from my email inquires.

Does anyone have any suggestions.

thanks
