Film as a Primary Source

Newsreels and other types of film can often serve as useful primary sources. Try the following for primary source films:

Films on Demand - use the filter options to limit by type to newsreels/primary sources

Academic Video Online - use the advanced search and limit by content type to archival footage, newsreel, speech/address etc.

Associated Press newsreel archive - try the advanced search and limit results by decade
