Greetings ... I need to store a large number of film rolls. I have a spare freezer. Can I store them in that? States below 13 degrees on the can, but have been told it is OK to freeze film. What about film that has been exposed, can I freeze that? Periods of time? Many thanks.

you can freeze unexposed film, just give it sufficient time to aclimatize before you use it.
i would not recommend to freeze exposed (i assume you mean latent) film, exposed film should always be developed as soon as possible. however it its only for a week or so you might be fine.
