Where to hire, buy & sell #16mm & #Super8 films #Adelaide

I always get lots of people asking me where can I get my hands on some films – reel films. 16mm films, Super 8 films and projectors.

A great place for film collectors to buy and sell is the REEL DEALS magazine an Australian Magazine: 12 MONTHS SUBSCRIPTION (4 EDITIONS)
Australia: $15.00
New Zealand: $ 20.00 air mail
Elsewhere: AU$ 25.00 air mail

The NFSA (National Film & Sound Archive of Australia) offers film and video for loan to cinemas, film festivals, film societies and educational, cultural and community organisations. Access is through two separate catalogues:
National Film & Sound Archive of Australia:
Theatrical Loans:;adv=;query=;resCount=
Non-theatrical lending collection:

I hope these contacts help and you can always surf Ebay for films, however most sellers are in the USA, so watch the postage costs.
Happy film collecting & watching!

If anyone knows of other places to buy, sell and collect films in Australia please add your comments to this post.

Very informative, Andy. Another source, and contacts-full read, is Dress Circle magazine from Lithgow NSW. No website but email to or talk to the enthusiastic Ross Adams on (02) 6353 1897. Sub is $25 for four issues. Subscribers may advertise themselves free.

Great! Thanks for the extra info.




People who want to buy take up reels, film cement, film stock and processing (to shoot their own films) or want their personal films scanned and restored should speak to DVD Infinity in Sydney. Have a look at the following restoration page
