What kind of film capacitor would they be talking about - I checked wikipedia, and there is a plethora of film caps.
Haydon,

A while back I looked into the Capacitors that Soliton Controllers used.

They are using CORNELL DUBILIER TYPE 947C Film Capacitors. I am not sure of the capacitance value that they are using. Their high-voltage and high-current ratings allows one or a few of them to replace a whole bank of aluminum electrolytic capacitors.

Don't be shocked on the cost of them, one (1) capacitor will cost you between $125 - $225 depending on it's capacitance value.
