Abstract A superconducting film of (Li$_{1-x}$Fe$_{x})$OHFeSe is reported for the first time. The thin film exhibits a small in-plane crystal mosaic of 0.22$^{\circ}$, in terms of the full width at half maximum of the x-ray rocking curve, and an excellent out-of-plane orientation by x-ray $\varphi $-scan. Its bulk superconducting transition temperature $T_{\rm c}$ of 42.4 K is characterized by both zero electrical resistance and diamagnetization measurements. The upper critical field $H_{\rm c2}$ is estimated to be 79.5 T and 443 T for the magnetic field perpendicular and parallel to the $ab$ plane, respectively. Moreover, a large critical current density $J_{\rm c}$ of a value over 0.5 MA/cm$^{2}$ is achieved at $\sim $20 K. Such a (Li$_{1-x}$Fe$_{x})$OHFeSe film is therefore not only important to the fundamental research for understanding the high-$T_{\rm c}$ mechanism, but also promising in the field of high-$T_{\rm c}$ superconductivity application, especially in high-performance electronic devices and large scientific facilities such as superconducting accelerator.
