“Thank you so much, I am delighted with DVD you made of the 3 films I sent you. I had no idea what was on them but having watched the DVD when I received it today I think one of the films must have been over 50 years old and the others 35+. I am amazed by the results and am so glad I sent them to you. They bring back lots of memories.”
“Just received the DVD etc and are absolutely over the moon with the results. Both my wife and I are delighted and have gone back to the future and thank you very much for so much for the resurrection of wonderful and forgotten memories for us both.”

At 70, both Mum & Dad really appreciate looking back at their earlier years & they just wanted to pass on their thanks to you for the expedited service & quality of transfer. Thanks Again!!!! The Celeriers
Just wanted to let you know that my dad , my sister and myself have all watched the dvd’s that you did for us from our old cine film and we all thought they were just fantastic!
My dad was telling us who everybody was and it obviously brought back a lot of memories for him.It was also so nice for me and my sister to see footage of the family house – The Cedars – and also of our Grandfather who we never met.Just to see him walking around was really odd!
Thank you so much for the brilliant job you did.
Many Many Thanks,
Fantastic service!! Having only seen these films as a vhs copy of a vhs, cine film factory have been able to show me the clear faces of my grandparents who I never had the chance to meet.
Their communication was fantastic and the turnaround time was brilliant too. Thank you so much
Thank you for the excellent service you provided, converting Cinefilm to DVD. You understood how precious these reels are and you explained the process and kept me well informed during the whole order.
It has been amazing seeing the old footage which has been hidden in a loft for years. So many memories. Thank you again and I would highly recommend.
Our MotorCycle Club had several thousand feet of 16mm sound and silent films some of which went back to pre-war. Much of the footage was in a poor state and probably about to expire.
Cine Factory cleaned up and stabilised the film then copied it to MP4.
We are extremely pleased with the results and can now enjoy our library on club nights without having to set up our ancient projectors and screen.

If you're looking to have your family film(s) professionally restored and transferred, look no further than Simon Papouis at the Cine Film Factory. His knowledge, expertise and experience sets him apart from any other film restoration specialist in the United Kingdom. Couple this with his friendly, understanding and welcoming personality, and he's one of the easiest people to talk to when it comes to literally anything. The way Simon handled my Grandfather's film was as if it were his own, so you can rest easy knowing your film is in good hands with Simon. I would 100% recommend The Cine Film Factory for any of film requirements.
It was a wise investment and it was just amazing to see my Family members back in the 60s getting married and on holiday, I can really recommend this business and their care and professionalism through the process!
Thank-you Simon for saving my old cine films; the memories are priceless to me!
Would 110% recommend! Simon and the team at The Cine Film Factory were out of this world! After years and years of my mum telling me about her cine films of her as a child at Disney, I finally found them without her knowing and got in touch with The Cine Film Factory. Simon was who I spoke to and he was so helpful and professional. I was worried about some of the films as I could see that they were very old and not looking in the best condition. After they found out it was for my mums birthday who has spent the last 8 months working closely with COVID-19 patients as a nurse in intensive care, they were adamant they wanted to look after her films and give her back those amazing memories she had as a child. Simon’s words were “in these times it’s all about helping each other and your mum has helped us a lot, so we really want to help her” which I just though was so kind. They worked so hard to get as much content as possible off of the films as they could and worked so quickly to get them done in time for her birthday. When my mum saw the films playing on the screen for the first time since she was a child, she just burst into tears with joy and happiness from her childhood memories and that was all thanks to the amazing Cine Film Factory! You gave my mum something she has dreamed about for so many years and I really can’t thank you enough!
