This is not PS advice BUT do you run your photos through any noise reduction programs? such as Helicon or Neat Image (both available as free downloads) as I consider both these help to give a 'filmy' look when processed on pics without much digital noise in the first place.

Another technique some people like is to apply a little Gaussian blur (around 1-2%) then immediately choose edit, select colour.. This applies it only to the colour channels i.e. not the luminance.. You can acheive a similar effect by changing Mode to LAB and applying Gaussian Blur on the colour channels only and at the same time sharpening on the L Channel..
Any Help ?
