Film Index International
An unmatched reference work for entertainment films and biographical information about directors, producers, actors and more, made in collaboration with the British Film Institute (BFI), it is based on the Summary of Film and Television (SIFT) database collated by the BFI over the past 70 years. Includes bibliographies that, unlike freely available resources such as the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), include scholarly and academic work in Cinema Studies. Entries include full cast and crew lists, searchable plot synopses, filmographies, biographical details, important dates, awards and prizes, and thorough bibliographies, with citations for original reviews from the time of a film's release as well as interviews, historical surveys and obituaries. Includes works of film from blockbusters to arthouse films from the present day back to the era early cinema and silent film. With more comprehensive coverage of international films--European, Asian, Latin American, African--than any other comparable index. Includes over 125,000 film records and over 800,000 person records.
