We are an amateur video and film making group, based in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, making documentary films of local interest. Previously known as Market Harborough Cine Society we have filmed local people and local events since the early 1960s and over the last few years we have added many new films to the collection, including our own local history films.
Some Of Our Most Popular Films

Last years new films, previewed at our annual film show in The Harborough Theatre, were all well received. Top of the bill was our award winning film 'The River Welland Restoration' (see below). This followed the work carried out to improve the flow and look of the river through Welland Park and into the town. Other films now available for public showing include The History of the Old Grand Union Canal and a look at the five days of Harborough by the Sea in 2015.
We have a full program in place now for our 2016/17 season. Our usual good mixture of speakers on film making topics and visits from other clubs to show us their new films (see Current Programme).
Film making activities range from a local vineyard, where we will be following their year and, in the planning stage, a film about the Cottage Hospital before it finally closes.
We have made a short promotional film for the Arts Fresco team which is now available on this page.
Well known locally, we have regular and supportive audiences but always welcome new enquiries from groups who would like an interesting film show at one of their own meetings.
We meet twice a month. One meeting is a film show night where we have visiting clubs and speakers showing us their films and the other a practical evening where we could be watching members films or demonstrating and discussing some aspect of film making.
Visitors are welcome and we would especially encourage anybody with an interest in any aspect of filmmaking to come along and meet us. See Joining us.
