I am looking for a Canon 35mm FILM camera which is compatible with EF AND ALSO EF-S lenses. Does it even exist? If it does not exist then does there exist a canon 35MM film camera that is compatible with EF-S lenses.

MUST be a film camera also.. This is for my kids school class so I am hoping to get something where she can utilize my Canon's 7D's collection of EF and EF-S lenses.

As far as I can recall, you can not use efs lens on a film camera. This is because the efs lens back element sits further back, this means that the mirror is lightly smash into the back of the lens.
Having said this, film camera's are so cheap that trying this for yourself (with a cheap efs lens) would not hurt you pocket to much. Good luck.

Lots of film bodies going for less than 50 bucks. Film rebels, film EOS600 series and they'd be compatible with EF lenses.

If it's film, there's lots of good cameras with lenses attached already.

To add to what's been said, EF-S lenses project a smaller circle than EF lenses. It won't cover the area of a full frame sensor, or piece of film.

No, EF-S lenses are a product of the digital camera era and are designed solely for crop sensor, and do not mount to any film cameras (which were EF only, or other mounts if older).

Looking at your lenses, you don't seem to be wanting for any focal length on FF or film.

+1

That sums up why that camera you're looking for doesn't exists.
