local dropoffs

we're so excited to be partnered with The Frida Cinema in Santa Ana to help grow the HFL community. you can now drop off your film to be processed by us at their storefront! this is a great solution if you're local to Orange County, but do not want to pay for shipping in order to have your film developed. 

we strive to pick up your film once every 1-2 weeks; once received, we will send you an email indicating that your film is in our possession and process it!

in order to drop off your film, you must purchase the services that you're interested in on our website beforehand. we do not have order forms on-site. please bring your film in a Ziploc bag, and leave a note inside including your name, address, and email so that we can properly identify your film.

we have several options regarding your film negatives; you can either pay to have them shipped back to you, have them discarded, or pick them up in-store for free. if you opt to pick up your negatives in-store, we will send you an email when they're ready. please bring some form of ID so the employees can verify your identity. your negatives will only be held for 30 days, so please pick them up to prevent any issues!

The Frida Cinema's address is:
305 E 4th St #100, Santa Ana, CA 92701

come out to support the lab and watch a film while you're at it!
