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.

Last year's new films, previewed at our annual film show in The Harborough Theatre, were all well received. Top of the bill was 'The Welland Valley Vineyard'. This was a 12 month project where we followed the life and work of our local vineyard, from pruning the vines in early spring to bottling the finished product late in the year. A second new film was 'Cinemas of Market Harborough', a nostalgic look at the rise and fall of the cinemas in the town,.
Our programme for the remainder of 2017 is now finalised with our usual good mixture of speakers on film making topics and visits from other clubs to show us their new films (see Current Programme).
A major project for this year is to follow the film of the local vineyard with one about the Langton Brewery. We've already started with the Barley Harvest.
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.
