    Never really tried. Never had film that stay unused longer than 6 months.
    Anyway, do remember to give some time for the film to "defrost" before using them...in humid Singapore, water vapour can easily form on cold film.

    Store in the fridge. no need freezer. Store till expiry date, which by then the colours should start to fade.
