Hey,

I know my university's Film department has a deal with them, but as I'm technically a Fine Art student I don't know if it applies to me - I'd also like to be able to order whenever I need some, but I understand kodak may not want to be sending out the odd ten rolls.


Does anyone know how this works?

Well I don't know specifically about super-8, but I've ordered single 100ft spools of 16mm film directly from Kodak UK - that's the same filming duration as a S8 cartridge.

Their price was/is the same as the cheapest online supplier I could find, but Kodak don't charge for postage, so it works out cheaper overall. If you can get a student discount as well, then even better! :)

Just some added notes if anyone searches and finds this thread.

You have to scan your student ID and email them it.
The prices above are without VAT.
and you must buy at least £40 worth to get free next day delivery.


:) I got mine today.
