You might try Haddon: the online catalogue of archival ethnographic film
footage, at

The catalogue contains records for more than 1500 films, mostly
documentary, shot between 1895 and 1945. Each record contains addresses
and details for locating and viewing the film.

The search engine provided with the catalogue is not very good so you
should not give up too quickly if you don't find what you want. I have
found the best way to locate a film is to have the catalogue to make a
list of films for the area in which you are interested, and then to look
through the list.
