Updated regularly. Compiled by specialist researchers at the American Film Institute (AFI), this is one of the main resources for American films providing an exhaustive view of American features produced between 1893 and 1974. Includes full production and cast information, plus extensive plot summaries and production notes by AFI experts on each motion picture covered. Records are updated twice yearly with TV and movie adaptations and life details on previously released films.
The AFI Catalog documents nearly 48,000 films produced in the United States or financed by American companies. More than 17,500 entries cover the early years of American film from 1893 to 1910.
Also included is a full listing of the Top 10 films from 2000 forward. The AFI records the year's most outstanding achievements in film and honours these at the annual AFI Awards. The site includes information on the chosen films listed in alphabetical order within each year the film was premiered.
