Speaking of eastern Europe,
I recently visited Prague, and the Foma brand still makes Double Super-8
(DS8) b&w film stock! Just like regular-8 (they also make regular-8) you
shoot one side, then flip it over and shoot the other...
I picked up a couple of rolls, and as I didn't have a DS8 camera I also
found a used one for less than $10.

I am waiting for some bright spring days to go out and shoot it :)
