The American Film Institute Catalog draws its content from six printed volumes that document every American film from 1893 to 1970 (except 1951 to 1960). Each film record has been meticulously compiled by the experienced editors and filmographers at the American Film Institute (AFI).
Search records by keywords; film titles; cast, crew, and character names; subject; genre; release year and more. Most records include extensive plot summaries.
The catalog provides comprehensive filmographic information on over 45,000 films, including more than 17,500 made in the early years of film from 1893 to 1910. The database includes approximately one million personal name entries, including more than 500,000 actor entries and 27,000 director entries.
