So you can easily answer that one yourself.
Film IS dead and will only go on to be a sideshow for enthusiasts.
It's probably a great hobby, but do you want a second one,
especially as the price seems to be the main motivation ?
Two parallel hobbies are unlikely to co-exist with the amount
of time available to most people nowadays.
Do the bod a favour and take up something physical,
like bog-snorkelling or belt-sander racing.

One can easily shoot digital and film side by side And many do. I shoot with digital for work but when I want ultimate quality and resolution on personal projects or prints, I still use film. My MF and LF gear give me better results than my full frame DSLR.

It's actually a good time to try film as it is enjoying a resurgence the last few years. Many people are either curious about film or bored with digital. Just keep telling yourself that film is dead. People will keep shooting it after we are all dead.
