This site, produced by the Film and Television Department of the British Council, features online versions of two useful publications aimed at both film enthusiasts and film makers. Both publications are offered in an easy-to-use database format; the data can be browsed, searched, or sorted with relative ease. The first database is an online version of The British Films Catalogue, an annual publication that provides information about new and recent films produced in Great Britain. It offers brief synopses of dozens of feature films, shorts, and documentaries that are either in production or are being released in 2000. In addition to a synopsis, each film's entry supplies information about the cast, crew, production company, and sales agent, and most entries include a still taken from the film. Previous editions of the guide (dating back to 1998) are also contained in the database. The second offering at britfilms.com is an online version of The Directory of International Film and Video Festivals, which "lists over 500 international film, television and video festivals, giving details on how and when to enter these events." The list of festivals may be browsed in its entirety, searched on several fields, or sorted by country. Paper copies of both publications can also be ordered at the site.
