Fujifilm to stop making film for movies - Kyodo

Sept 12 (Reuters) - Japan’s Fujifilm Holdings Corp will stop making film used to shoot motion pictures around next spring due to a fall in demand, Kyodo news agency said.

The film and camera maker has seen faltering demand for motion picture film due to increasing digitalization in the movie industry, especially since a hike in the film prices in July, the news agency reported.

Fujifilm will, however, continue making special film designed to preserve motion pictures for a long period, Kyodo said. (Reporting by Eileen Anupa Soreng in Bangalore; Editing by Sreejiraj Eluvangal)
