Limit by time period (the collection includes films from 1895-1999), country of origin, or genre (such as animation, dance, drama, and fiction). An interesting search feature is element; you film buffs can see the difference between hand couloured and stencil coloured! (Note the British spellings.)

Each entry contains a brief essay about the film and a link to view the film. Enjoy!
