She was the most famous woman in the world when she took off from New York on 21st May 1932.
Paris, France was her intended destination - but instead she ended up in Gallaghers Pasture, Co Londonderry, Northern Ireland.
Nevertheless, she became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic.
Joe Campbell is the author of 'The Amelia Earhart Story' said the brave pilot realised that something was amiss when she reached the highlands of Co Donegal.
He said: "She had a bad fuel leak so the point was she had to put it down."
The lost footage of her arrival at a field on the outskirts of Derry was uncovered by Colin Cobb.
He told UTV that a man called Grenville Mackie flew up to Derry in his own aircraft with his own 35mm camera and took the footage.
The film reel is being aired for the first time in the city on Monday night as part of the annual Earhart Festival.
Ollie Green, festival organiser, said: "The 80th Anniversary is a keystone for our city as a City of Culture to take onboard the legacy of Amelia Earhart and to ensure we send a message out worldwide that we're proud of that connection and we want to build on it."
Five years after Amelia Earhart touched down in the region, she disappeared on a round the world flight never to be seen again.
