Film Studies Research Guide: Annuals & Directories

A guide to conducting research in Film Studies at Yale University, including key resources and crucial search strategies.

Annuals & Directories

Annuals and directories provide year-by-year information about developments in filmmaking in the US and around the world, changes in the film industry, and contacts for people within the movie business. Some of these resources go as far back as 1905.

Here is a selected list.

For additional resources, see also Biographies, Credits and Plots, and Film Dictionaries and Encyclopedias.
