    Default do you put USED (before processing) film in the fridge?

    I know that people put new rolls of film in the fridge to ensure a cooler climate to preserve the film.

    What about if one is done with shooting a roll of film?
    Does it make sense to put the film canister ino the fridge ? (due to reasons that development will have to be at a later date ~ 2 or 3 months)

    Thanks

    Default freeze

    have done it.
    keep it airtight in plastic container.
    when removing let container get to room temperature
    before opening. condensation problem.

    do not put into the freezer. unless very long term.
    not sure if film will become brittle.

    Same when using film. But I never put the film in the freezer.

    have put film in freezer before for long term storage but all unexposed.

    have kept exposed film in chiller before to await processing. No prob.

    ok.. i've got like 30 rolls of provia in my chiller since ........2001 (i think), and its not been used yet. I've always left it in there thinking some day I'm gonna lay my hands on a Fuji GSW 690 III and start using the film. BUT, seeing this thread, will the film still be suitable for use? Its been almost 4 years!!
