Film/AV Collections of FIAF Affiliates Online


Today, the Internet provides a wide range of possibilities to stream or download digitized films and other audiovisual materials from the collections of FIAF affiliates, including various third-party pay-per-view or subscription  S/VOD services. The list provided below concentrates exclusively on those outlets and platforms that offer free access to the holdings of FIAF affiliates online and are run or to a great extent maintained by the archives themselves. Many of the collections featured in the list have been carefully selected and contextualised (e.g. by providing extensive curatorial notes or including the films alongside other film-related documents and media). In some cases, optional English subtitles are available for films in other languages.


If your institution's film/audiovisual collection online is not yet listed here, please send the relevant information to info@fiafnet.org.
