What started with the rescue of a single film bound for the refuse tip 50 years
ago, and the certain loss of historically important social documentation, has
grown to a collection of more than 4,000 reels of film and in excess of 100
This is the story of one manís passion for movie film and his life-long quest to collect and preserve amateur local cine film and associated equipment for posterity. Working alone, John Earl gradually involved other cine enthusiasts who started to meet at his Wellingborough home, where they showed some of the films they had taken themselves - along with a couple of purchased Pathe newsreels and comedies.
As the group gradually gathered momentum John, together
with Rushden photographer, Arthur George, founded the Northants 9.5 Group. When
other film gauges began to be added to their collection the name was changed to
The Northamptonshire Film Archive and acquired Trust status shortly afterwards.
