Are there any issues with shipping film internationally? Specifically with x-rays...I'm thinking that DHL or FedEx would be safe that way...

It's a grey base. You can see it pretty clearly here: http://www.filmferrania.it/news/2016/in-the-loop
You have grey acetate too? Even better!

Most companies who make film ship it around the world every day and there doesn't seem to be a problem to speak of... We will be shipping from two warehouses, one in the US and one in the EU. We do not anticipate problems shipping film to customers.

They X-ray just as much as anybody else in my experience. We've been shipping with DHL and FedEx many times - and also the regular postal service. Never had any problems. However, if you send your films through X-ray at the airports multiple times, then expect some fogging and X-ray problems which I've seen a few times over the years.

In case anyone was wondering what's going on with Ferrania Emulsive did this interview with them. I have an order in for some of the P30 35mm film.
