It is not all bad news. For those who were fans of Ilab they will be interested that the equipment has been bought and a new lab set-up in Park Royal, London. The lab is called Idailies and their web site is here: http://www.i-dailies.com/ Their phone number is +44 208 9939794. You can talk to Nigel Horn.

Are you sure about Cineco Amsterdam? Their webpage doesn't say anything about this, and they still list negative and positive processing for both 16 and 35.

This is a message posted on the AMIA-L list serv:

I talked to Peter Limburg (CEO Cineco) last night on the phone.
Both companies are bankrupt.
Their employees are at home as of yesterday, the companies entrance door was sealed of today.
It's very sad, but it's over..

It's very sad when a lab leaves, I would head over there and try to reclaim equipment they might be tossing.

Brian,
Spoke to i-dailies a few weeks ago and they were VERY helpful. This was their email back to me:

"16mm, we charge .24p a foot, however we have a minimum charge of £75. No problem and that we can crop to 16;9 on Telecine.

As for super 8. We charge £50 per cassette, with a minimum charge of £100. We only process on Thursday mornings."

I understand that Haghefilm are about to reopen. This was posted on Facebook.

Good news for Dutch film industry today: Dutch film lab Cineco
resumes as Haghefilm Digitaal

Dutch film lab Cineco and daughter company Haghefilm
Conservation, which were declared bankrupt on October 23, will
get a relaunch and will resume their activities under the new
name Haghefilm Digitaal BV.

The restart prevents the disappearing of the knowledge of 35 mm
film development and preservation from the Netherlands and makes
sure film producers do not have to go abroad for the technical
post-production of their films.

The relaunch of Cineco BV and Haghefilm BV is made possible by
Erik Vrolijk and Wibo de Groot, who have over 20 years of
international experience in the field of film laboratories,
dealing with analogue as well as digital film. The two
entrepeneurs have taken the lead in saving the only film lab in
the Netherlands in order to keep the knowledge of film
preservation within the country and to safeguard the
conservation of cultural heritage. Managing Director of Hagefilm
Digitaal is Erik Vrolijk.
