Today I could read that Kodak made a statement to continue the production of (profitable) film. Though we learned last week that Kodak USA bellied up (buzzword: chapter 11), the branches in other countries remained uneffected.
However, January 20th, 2012 Kodak marketing director Audrey Jonckheer made following statement:
Film (still and cinema) remains a profitable business for Kodak, and we have the broadest and most respected portfolio of films in both segments. We have taken steps to sustain the business as it has declined, and we know that there are hundreds of passionate fans of film for the artistic and quality reasons they cite. We remain committed to make film as long as there is profitable demand for it. And as I noted, it is still profitable.
