The AFI Catalog Silent Film database contains over 25,000 entries for silent American films from the years 1893-1930. Entries for silent films produced after 1911 are for feature-length films only.
Detailed information on cast, crew, plot summaries, subjects, genres and historical notes are included for each film. In many cases, entries from previously published Catalogs have been updated and augmented with additional information.
With funding provided by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, entries for more than 750 silent feature films also include information on availability and sources for VHS tapes (NTSC) and DVDs (Region 1).
