Registered Charity No. 298527



The Northamptonshire Film Archive Trust is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers dedicated to the preservation of cine film and equipment. We are formal members of the Northamptonshire Heritage Forum.

The Trust has in the region of 5,000 reels of film in its collection both professional and amateur and of all gauges. It has a particular interest in the collection of film depicting events in Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties and is frequently called upon by television companies seeking specific footage for inclusion in documentaries or news reports.

Like books in a library that need to be read, the Trust believes film is meant to be seen. As a self-funded charity organisation and, as a means of financial support, we arrange visits to educational, historical and heritage groups across the county. In 2023 we will present some screenings at the recently opened Chester House estate.

We are pleased to accept the donation of unwanted film to our archive and can provide a conversion service to preserve film on DVD or other digital media. Find more information here.

There's a new way to support The Northamptonshire Film Archive Trust at no cost to yourself! 

We have registered the trust on the Amazon Smile website which will donate a percentage of the value on every eligible order. Should you wish to do so please search for ‘Northamptonshire Film’ on the Amazon Smile website and our name, The Northamptonshire Film Archive Trust, will be displayed. The regular donation to us is 0.5% and, though that may not sound much, every little helps and can soon build up. 

If you are thinking of making an online purchase and would like to support us you can do so by shopping through: smile.amazon.co.uk 

Thank you
