The LIFT Store provides members and the general public with an affordable option to buy motion picture film, chemicals, editing supplies and expendables. LIFT sells a wide range of film and materials for Regular 8mm (aka Double 8 or Standard 8), Super 8mm, 16mm and 35mm—if you see it listed here and it is not “out of stock”, it is available for purchase.
Masks must be worn at all times while visiting the LIFT premises (see operations notice above)
QUESTIONS: All LIFT Store questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m a general/production member, how do I get my membership discount?
Under Membership menu, select “login” option and register your account with the same e-mail you registered your membership with, create a password, and then proceed to the Store page to place your order with membership price! Alternatively, you can email your order to email@example.com for pick-up orders.
When can I pick up my order? When will you ship out my order to me?
Store items will be shipped via Canada Post on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Pickup is available between 11:00am and 4:00pm, Monday to Friday. Please allow us time to process your order. When your order is ready, we will send you a confirmation email to book your pickup timeslot. At least 1 business day is required for a store item pick up. Orders made before 4:00pm ET can be picked up the following day after 12noon ET.
I can’t pick up my order, can someone else pick up for me?
Yes, someone else can pick up your order for you. The designated pick up person must be identified for your order before they show up.
I live in the GTA, but your website is not letting me choose pickup. Can I still pick up my order?
Yes, you can. Please note, for local pickup options, please use a city of Toronto address in shipping address (you can use LIFT’s address if your mailing address is outside Toronto but want to pick up.)
I wanted to make a film purchase, but I noticed it was out of stock on your store. Is the website updated? Do you know when it would be back in stock? Can you give me a timeline?
The LIFT Store website is always up-to-date. If you noticed an item is out of stock, then we, unfortunately, do not have it in stock. We also are unable to give you a timeline on when the film will be back in stock, as it depends on our supplier. Please be sure to check the website often for updates.
I would like to make a film purchase, but I noticed the specific film is not on your store. Can I still purchase the film from you as a custom order?
Yes, you can. If you are special ordering any Kodak products not listed on the LIFT Store, please reference exact catalogue number from the KODAK Motion Picture Products Price Canadian Catalog found here: https://www.kodak.com/en/motion/page/order-film
I bought something off your store but I would like to return it/exchange it. Can I return/exchange my order?
All sales are final, no exchanges and no refunds.
I purchased film from you, but the cartridge/box/film was defective. Can you replace it?
Any film material found defective cannot be replaced by manufacturer after 30 days from purchase date, per Kodak’s return policy. If you notice damage, please let us know as soon as possible so we can liaise with Kodak a replacement for you.
Can I make purchases and pay over the phone? Can I email you my credit card details?
Payments for email and phone purchases are by credit card only (Mastercard, VISA, American Express only). Credit card purchases will only be processed by phone, please do not send your credit card information via email. LIFT does not keep credit card information on file, you will be required to provide all payment details for each transaction.
Do you process/scan film at LIFT? Can I drop off my film to be processed and scanned?
We do not offer processing/scanning/printing services at LIFT. Production Members and Student Production Members can rent our facilities to process/scan their film themselves. To take a look at the facilities offered, click here.
