Smallcombe Film Compilation

An unidentified – and intriguing – anthology of early amateur film.

Amateur film 1918 21 mins Silent


This intriguing reel of 35mm film arrived unidentified at the BFI National Archive several decades ago. It appears to be a compilation of pre-war and World War I footage – quite possibly amateur films, and maybe assembled from several different sources. We'd welcome your help in identifying locations: the pony fair may be from Bampton, Devon?
