    Write to enquire as to an appropriate slide film to use for low-light
    photography for an outdoor Blues 'n' Jazz festival.

    The pictures will be primarily taken face onto the stage with the
    performers, therefore, backlit by the stage lights.

    Some of the festival will occur during the daytime, but much will
    occur in the evening and nighttime after sun-down.

    Have other photographers here undertaken this kind of photography
    afterdark. If so, can you suggest an appropriate (probably fast)
    slide film for use under these circumstances.

    Thanks for your help.

    The only really fast slide film available is Ektachrome 1600P, and
    that's really an ISO-400 film that's been "optimized" for 2-stop push

    If you really want fast without special processing, and if you're not
    wed to slide film, try Fujipress 1600.
