What does The Complete Index to World Film since 1895
offer that is different from other movie databases that may be
accessed at no cost?
Well, first and foremost CITWF can be accessed free as well.
You do so with the knowledge, though, that it is based on
published materials and not on information sent in by the
public. It has provenance. You know also that with 490,500
plus films it can be compared with any other movie database
on the Internet. It also contains thousands of films not
found in other databases.
Basically, CITWF is a first stop reference tool. In seconds,
from a Simple Search, you get the film details and
references to published material. You may also use the
Advanced Search and build a query across several fields.
Again, you have your answer in seconds. For this to work
well, it needs to be a comprehensive work and with
(> 714,000 titles), you know this database has the substance.
Subscription costs £150/€175/$225 a year and is provided via
IP addresses. Trials of the full database easily arranged.
