Film Cell Votive Candle

Need a list-minute holiday gift for a cinephile? Try these. The story goes that 3 projectionists from New York City decided to make their own Christmas gifts last year and came up with these - film cell votive candle holders featuring a real 35mm frame of film. "We took a film cell from an old movie and embedded it onto a candle votive. We use a real 35mm film cell that ran through a projector and showed on the silver screen. We wanted to find a new audience who would appreciate the value and novelty of owning a piece of old Hollywood." They're now being sold on Etsy for $12 each and you can even choose whichever film you want.

Here's a look at the film cell votive candle holders, as listed on Etsy or the official website. Full gallery here.

The pitch: "Here is a chance to own a piece of actual film. We’ve taken a real film cell from a Hollywood motion picture and embedded it on the side of a frosted candle votive to illuminate the image. Each film cell is unique because each cell only appears once when projected on a movie screen. This is truly a one of a kind item." Each votive is 2"x2"x2" and comes with a tea light size candle. They're made out of existing film stock, so if there's one you really want, you better grab it now before they run out of film - and these are all real prints. For a full gallery of what they have available, click here and order one (or more) on Etsy. I just think these are neat, inexpensive film-lover gifts made out of old Hollywood itself. Nice work, projectionists.
