If you shoot fuji 64d it may be slow enough to not be too much affected by x-ray scanners.

There are beautiful buildings, murals and landscape/environment in Christiana that are all exteriors. Big beautiful lake too! :)

Interiors could be more problematic as you will probably need faster film.
Denmark is in the schenzen area so might be less likely to be x-rayed than being sent to the states or something like that but I guess you never know.

I suspect you will be okay.

Dear Frameworkers, 
In january myself, Mat & Harriet from star and shadow cinema in Newcastle are going to Christiania in Copenhagen for a month. 
We are shooting 16mm neg colour film but for some boring reasons are only able to buy it once we are out there. 
We are looking to do the complete 16 deal with fuji 
but we would have to buy it from the uk and get it shipped. Fuji have said they'll ship it and its a decent price but when I asked whether the film would be xrayed or not they said they it may well be and that it may effect the film. The person who I spoke to also said that the effect also depended on which way the film was up etc when it went through any scanner!
Mat reckons its won't effect the film. And I guess the amount of film that flows through ebay this must be the case! Do any of you have any advice re this? Or links to good articles?

Also if we transport extra film via the plane luggage how do you think this will be ? I've done it tonnes of time with super 8 of course and it didn't have any effect on the film that I could see.
