How do I convert feet to running time when shooting on film?
Internet Filmmakers' FAQ
Working out the running time for your film is as simple as follows:
- 16mm shot at 24fps will be 36ft per minute
- 35mm shot at 24fps will be 90ft per minute
Remember that changing the camera speed (i.e. increasing/decreasing the frame rate) will affect these ratios!

Our friends at Kodak make it easy for those of us who want to work out who much film lasts for how long: http://www.kodak.com/US/en/motion/filmCalculator.html
