Filmakers Library Online

User Created Playlists

Users of this collection have created some particularly interesting and specific playlists that go into greater depth than the general topics applied to the collection, including lists of videos from the Oscars, films from World War II, and videos dealing with disability.  The list of playlists is pretty short right now, but if you're interested in an issue that's more specific than those provided on the topics page it's worth checking to see if someone has made a playlist. 

Finding Videos

Videos in Filmakers Library Online are organized by Director/Producer, Topic, and location.  To find relevant videos you can either browse those categories or use the advanced search functions to create a search using those limiters.  Remember that all of these videos come with searchable transcripts, so it's possible to do a full-text search that will capture most ideas discussed in the film and not just particular topics.
