It's hard to say prrecisely what the situation is in Tblisi at the moment. The problem is more likely to be the availability of electricity rather than film. A colleague of my wife has two hour's worth a day. In general, the former Soviet republics are well supplied with film and processing. When I was in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, last October, a place that if anything is poorer than Georgia, the main deopartment store had six minilabs. The film was Kodak and Fuji. One minilab had a scanner into which you would stick your negatives and see them , polarity reversed (as positives) on a TV screen. Haven't seen that here in London yet. The U.S. State Department may be able to help, even the Peace Corps, for the specifics on Georgia.
