This might be a stupid question - can you freeze exposed film and how long will it last until it starts to fade away?

Well, I personnally processed some B&W film I had exposed 22 years earlier and forgotten in the camera and any sign and fogging was minimal, let alone "fading". Some have reported successfully processing film forgotten in the camera for 50-60+ years. If you freeze ISO 100 or less exposed film, my guess is that you'd probably be able to process it and get a fair enough image 100 or 200 years later.

The question is: why would you want want to wait 200 years to have your film processed? ;-)
