Click image to view full catalog entry
The AFI Catalog, the most authoritative filmographic database on the web, includes entries on nearly 60,000 American feature-length and 17,000 short films produced from 1893-2011, as well as AFI Awards Outstanding Movies of the Year from 2000 through 2010.

The AFI Catalog is a unique filmographic resource providing an unmatched level of comprehensiveness and detail on every feature-length film produced in America or financed by American production companies. Detailed information on cast, crew, plot summaries, subjects, genres and historical notes are included for each film.

Search Features will help you find basic details for all of the films in the database, by searches utilizing movie title, personal or company name, subject, genre, song and literary source. The Advanced Search will further help you to narrow your search, including searches for multiple criteria.

The AFI Catalog contains both fully detailed records and basic records, with some films remaining only partially cataloged due to limited resources. Your support will help us to accelerate completion of the Catalog and fulfill AFI's promise to create the most reliable index to America's film heritage.

The American Film Institute is grateful to Sir Paul Getty KBE and the Sir Paul Getty KBE Estate for their dedication to the art of the moving image and their support for the AFI Catalog of Feature Films and without whose support AFI would not have been able to achieve this historical landmark in this epic scholarly endeavor.
