Welcome to Early Bird Films!
Vintage 16mm films for sale
On this site you will see various Features, Live Action and Animated Short Films, and TV Shows. I will also be listing Chapter Serials, Newsreels, and Home Movies, as well as Vintage Commercials, Trailers, TV Spots, Music Soundies, Scopitones and Telescriptions.
The concept for this site is that I want to sell directly to the film collecting public, first come, first serve, for a fixed price. And, to ensure that you are the first to be served, I highly recommend that you be signed up to our email alert. Just click on the link above in the top right and you will be emailed whenever films are added to this site. Sign up today!
Everything sold has a money back guarantee, (not including shipping & handling). If it is not as described, I will take it back, no questions asked. Prices are not negotiable after the sale, as I stand behind my descriptions and my strict film grading terms and practices.
Please click on the Quality Standards link for more info on how films are graded. Here is a preview of my standards: My highest grade is “Excellent Plus”. I don't believe “Mint” is a useful term to describe film. So there will be no eye-popping lead terms to make you think you have stumbled upon a fairytale print. Every film print has its drawbacks. Likewise “Near-Mint” will not be used either, as it is indefinable as “Near Infinity”.
