Neil Waters from the Thylacine Awareness Group of Australia is planning to reveal two new pieces of footage at a screening in Adelaide on Sunday.
Mr Waters told the Daily Mail that he had no doubt the animal was a Thylacine.
“The animal has a very peculiar gait, the way it walks is quite weird,” he said.
“In one of the clips you can clearly see stripes down the side.”
The last captive Thylacine died at Hobart Zoo in 1936 and the animal was officially declared extinct 50 years later.
Mr Waters first became interested in the fate of the Tasmanian Tiger when he moved to Tasmania in 2010.
On a GoFundMe page, he wrote that his first sighting was during a bushwalk with his dog.
He heard an animal in the bushes, and when he finally saw the creature in front of him he couldn’t believe his eyes.
“To my absolute surprise, it was a Thylacine, a Tasmanian Tiger,” he wrote.
