So many promising sites are created, but then quickly disappear. It seems that for every potentially interesting site that appears, another equally fascinating one disappears! This section has been added to reflect the goings-on behind the scenes here, reflecting what exactly is being performed here at Iverfilmservices.com HQ. This page will also provide regular visitors with something of an insight into the site's on-going development.
"This will also reveal whether I have been neglecting my duties lately in providing you with a steady flow of Iver-themed information!"
For regular site updates, and "fly-on-the-wall, as it happens" information, please keep checking here; I will endeavour to keep you regularly updated...
1 May 2016
Still here, hoping be add something new to the site. Check out our AFE Adverts' section which has a few extra titbits!
27 October 2015
Today was the first time I have taken to access the editorial section of this site in ages! There have been some fundamental coding changes [by the host site] but essentially we're good to go; good to proceed with a whole host of additional material garnered and collected lately for inclusion in this site. I'll keep you posted on anything new, as it happens, so keep checking here for further updates. Iver Film Services hasn't been forgotten about, it's still alive; alive and moving forward as ever...
8 July 2014
NEW SITE format; featuring a completely new font design. Figured it was time for a change. Hope you like the new layout. The change, however, has created a few typographical errors throughout, most notably to the now inverted apostrophies (i.e. 'inverted apostrophies') inserted everywhere. It would appear that the American site owner has made an error in the code, perhaps a deliberate error, which has resulted in this rather annoying typo!
20 March 2014
NEW PAGE, devoted to Kathy Stimac - the young actress who appeared in one-time "Video Nasty" Night of the Demon. Here, Kathy talk freely about her time on the set of one of the better, not to mention one of the most outrageous, "BIGFOOT" movies out there.
29 July 2013
NEW RECORD of Michael Apted's seldom seen 1972 WWII drama The Triple Echo. This release was exclusive to the company's Super-8mm range, as licensed (circa 1979) from HEMDALE.

SLEEVE SCAN and full IFS' synopsis added for Jean-Luc Goddard's now classic docu-drama, Sympathy for the Devil.
4 May 2013
NEW RECORD of 'Confessions of a Frustrated Housewife' added, which reflect its first (generic) carton-based release. This was likely issued by IFS some time during 1979.
6 April 2013
Three fresh sleeves scans, which includes a NEW RECORD, for three Super-8mm releases: To the Devil - A Daughter, TINTORERA (this one showing the film's sleeving in colour!) and Teenage Graffiti. The latter of these is a new record.
28 February 2013
Slight amendment made to page on "date stamping," which more accurately reflects when the process had ceased.
19 January 2013
New and powerful 'site search' function added, which can be used to search for specific text within this site. This is located on the main page, top right-hand corner. In addition to our new 'site search' facility, the main banner has also been given an uplift; resulting in a snazzy scroll-like effect. Hope you enjoy.
In addition to the above, a site-wide font change has also been made: hopefully this will convey Iver Film Services as a warmer and "friendler" place to visit.
12 November 2012
Record for Bruce Kessler's twisted and insipid tale of mock homosexuality, The Gay Deceivers. First seen in June 1969, this outrageous drama, from the director of Simon, King of the Witches (also released by IFS), remains the UK's only video release to date.
04 November 2012
Three more adult-themed IFS releases added today, namely Love Games, Erotic Young Lovers and Erotic Eva. These records will be (pardon the pun) fleshed-out in more detail over the next few days, when I have more time...

20 August 2012
Records for both Powderkeg (first release) and Seniors created today. Admittedly, Powderkeg needs a much better scan than the one provided; somewhat emphasising the need for better source material than what is sometimes uploaded here...

Several unreleased titles (including several titles which appeared on tape from Guild Home Video) have today been added to the main catalogue section. These will also be looked at in much closer detail in the days to follow...

Buttons added to each site featured in our LINKS section.
16 July 2012
Several new sections added; including our new section covering the then prevalent issue of IFS video piracy, worldwide! Other fresh sections include 'IFS on the telly' and 'IFS Fandom' - the latter of which is expected to become a 'fly on the wall' look into collections of Iver-themed memorabilia.
Oh - and also a sleeve scan of Francis Ford Coppola's television movie The People was added.

Slight text related alterations made to online record of The Curious Female. These include additional notes; a fresh (vastly improved) sleeve scan is also expected to follow shortly...
3 July 2012
Several text related alterations made, particularly to Iver's foreward and its brief history. Notes also added to reflect the "outlaw years", a decidedly modernistic term which is often used to describe the early years of the UKs unregulated video industry - with particular reference to it's conclusion: the lead up to Britain's Video Recordings Act (1984), which is still enforced today.
21 June 2012
Small customary changes made to our featured record of micro-distributor, Duplivision. These were obliged in accordance with the site's disclaimer, which governs our use (and publication) of any featured information herein.
18 June 2012
Fresh record created for Iver's adult-themed New Look: A Magazine for Men, which contains the full sleeve details for each of its seven featured 'adult' film shorts! Also, main page task bar now breaks down the AFE label into smaller chunks,
making browsing for a particular element or theme (hopefully) easier.
15 June 2012
This Web site has underwent a cosmetic make-over! Today, www.iverfilmservices.com has recieved a fresh new look, and many of the old links and pages have today been broken down into smaller bite-sized chunks. It is hoped that these changes will make browsing easier, particularly to the visitor who only wants to read certain specific elements.
Coming soon: Watch out for more fresh records, for such delicious Super-8mm titles as: Legacy of Satan, Blood and Black Lace, Erotic Eva, Daring Game, Blood and Physical Assault; while the super-rare carton of Double Possession is also expected to appear here very soon.
