We started with a simple idea; source film types which are exciting, those that make photography a bit more accessible and those that tend to be harder to find, making them immediately available to northeastern photographers, NYC and Brooklyn in particular. Our aim is to support the continuation of film photography, bolstering image making communities as well as film production.


Shop our selection of instant film, 35mm film and 120 film options with 2-3 day shipping anywhere in the US via USPS, same day delivery to NYC via Postmates and our teammates or next day delivery to the northeast via Fedex. Order 24/7. Orders ship Monday - Friday. All orders placed by 2:00 PM EDT will ship the same day. We hope you'll find film for your needs. Drop us a line if there's a film type you would like to see in our store.
