Library and Archives Canada launches the Canadian Feature Film Index and recognizes UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage

In order to mark the UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, Library and Archives Canada has launched the Canadian Feature Film Index database. This is one component of how LAC wishes to acknowledge this international day of recognition of audiovisual documents and their importance in society's evolution. The Canadian Feature Film Index, created as a printed index in 1972, is now available as an online database. This research tool provides information on over 4,300 Canadian feature films produced from 1913 to 2009. Selected entries include images of movie posters from LAC's holdings. Additions to the database will include entries for post-2009 films. Funding of this project was received through the Preservation and Access Component of the Canadian Feature Film Policy which is administered by Canadian Heritage
