Huntley Film Archives

The Huntley Film Archives is one of the largest independent film libraries in the UK, with a collection of more than 80,000 titles dating from 1895 to the present day.
John Huntley and his daughter Amanda established the company in 1984, and the archive continues to grow with the acquisition of new collections.
Operating mostly as a commercial enterprise, Huntley Archive provides film clips to broadcasters and other production companies. Researchers are however welcome to consult the collection.


The collection’s emphasis is on social history from Britain and around the world.
The collection however includes a substantial amount of footage shot in Latin America and the Caribbean: newsreels, travelogues, documentaries on the local industry and agriculture, and amateur home movies.
