It offers in-depth coverage of the world's foremost academic and popular film journals, many of which are seamlessly linked to a growing library of film journals. Each entry consists of a full bibliographic description, an abstract and comprehensive headings (biographical names, film titles and general subjects).

The International Index to Television Periodicals includes approximately 50,000 article references from 1979 to 2006. Full bibliographic description and headings are given for each entry and a separate thesaurus is offered.

The List of Periodicals Indexed is a separate database which provides addresses and other information (including ISSN) on the journals indexed in the two main databases: International Index to Film and TV Periodicals.

The Treasures from the Film Archives database contains unique information about silent film holdings in international film archives. It was conceived as a tool to aid the work of preservation, research and film exchange between archives, and provides filmographic and holdings information on over 40,000 works. Included are silent shorts and features, fiction and non-fiction, from over 100 of the world's major film archives.
