Are you a fan of documentaries? Are you a faculty member looking for great films to show in class or assign to your students? You’re in luck! The Villanova community now has access to Filmakers Library Online, a collection of 1700 high-quality streaming documentary films produced between 1978 and 2017.
The documentaries in this collection were created by both independent filmmakers and well-known producers. Content partners include BBC Worldwide, Oscilloscope Pictures, and Journeyman Pictures. You’ll find films connecting to a wide range of academic disciplines in FLON—from film history to art and architecture, from criminal justice to Asian Studies, from physics to jazz.

When I am in search of a video for class, I usually do an online search which is hit or miss. Having a library like this would be incredibly helpful. Since I teach a Social Problems course, many of the films would fit in my class. I am particularly interested in “Where Did You Get That Woman,” “When the Shooting Stops,” and “The Lynchburg Story: Eugenic Sterilization in America.” It seems like a rich resource that I would utilize frequently. – Kate Meloney, faculty member in Sociology and Criminology
This is a wonderful teaching resource! … I am diving right in and showing a piece on Stalin’s Gulags today. –Lynne Hartnett, faculty member in History
You can access Filmakers Library Online from this link or from the library website; it’s included on the Databases A-Z page, and detailed records for every film will soon be added to the Library catalog.
