Every thing you mention Eric has merit. When looking at the launch film of Olympic and Britannic, itís really only a minutes worth (for each ship). That would be so little tape. In the end, that could work against anyone keeping it. It appears whatever film there was went missing (lost or stored away) between June 1911 and mid April the following year. It appears from the Belfast Telegraph (June 6th) that a showing was at the Georges Hall Theatre. What it was coupled with is anyoneís guess. I couldnít see patrons paying to see a minutesí footage. This is why I think the film was likely stored away. It does however bode well as a point that is was actually an amateurís footage loaned / screened at the Hall. Being such a short run of footage, it may have simply been returned to the owner after a week or so once the attractiveness of seeing the launch had dissipated. The newspaper does tell us one thing, it did exist in the weeks following the launch and due to the fact that no copies (appear to have) made their way outside of Nth Ireland....reason has it that it should have remained in Belfast.
Someone may well have it. But how someone didn't come forward with it in the days following the disaster is a real mystery. Unless it did leave Northern Ireland in some visitors film camera.

PS
It would be awful if it actually left Belfast onboard Titanic !
