FIAF International Index to Film Periodicals Plus from ProQuest

The main database, the International Index to Film Periodicals contains over 500,000 article citations from more than 345 periodicals. It offers in-depth coverage of the world's foremost academic and popular film journals. Each entry consists of a full bibliographic description, an abstract and comprehensive headings (biographical names, film titles and general subjects). It is also the only database offering film periodical indexing using a hierarchically ordered controlled thesaurus with more than 20,000 subject terms. The index contains comprehensive television periodical indexing until 2000 and TV related articles from film periodicals continue to be indexed.

Treasures from film archives

This database contains credits and holdings information about the silent-era film holdings of film archives from around the world. It is conceived as a tool to aid the work of preservation and scholarly research, and provides brief identification information on over 47,000 works. The database encompasses features as well as short films, and actualities as well as fictional works. Citations indicate original title, alternate titles, and key credits and production information. Please note that although most records in this database describe films made before 1929, the database also includes a few silent works produced during the sound era.

Documentation collections

Detailed information about the documentation collections of the world's foremost film archives, libraries, and educational institutions.

FIAF affiliates' publications

The FIAF Affiliates' Publications search allows you to find detailed information on books, pamphlets, programmes, and other materials published since 1966 by FIAF archives. Please note that the earliest default search date for publication year on this page appears as 1934 because for serial publications (e.g. annual reports, journals) the first year of publication is noted. For comprehensive indexing search from 1966 onwards.
