    A YouTube channel which aims to tell the history of cinema, one film at a time. The first episode cheats slightly, covering the years 1888 - 1914 in one fell swoop, but from 1915 onwards the focus is on a single film per year, each example being selected for the way in which it demonstrates the advances made in the cinematic medium, in terms of technology, technique, genre etc. Amongst the directors covered are Charlie Chaplin, Sergei Eisenstein, Cecil B. DeMille and Buster Keaton. The site addresses animation, the advent of sound, techniques such as montage and the close-up, as well as early filmic examples of documentary, horror and science-fiction.

    The London Project is a study of the film business in London, 1894-1914, organised by the AHRB Centre for British Film and Television Studies. One of its major outcomes is a database of information about cinemas and film businesses in London before the First World War. Users can search by name of venue or business (eg, cinema, producer etc.), London borough, address (ie. street name) and classification. The information used to build the database has come from contemporary trade papers and directories, newspapers, local government records, Board of Trade files, memoirs and London borough archives.

The 64 films, curated by The Film Centre at Tokyo’s National Museum of Modern Art, include the oldest surviving Japanese animated film - 'The Dull Sword’, from 1917 - which was believed to be lost until a print was found in 2008 in an Osaka antique shop. The other films include public information films, propaganda, fairy tales, fables and historical drama. Although most of the site in its current form is in Japanese only, all the films have English titles and subtitles.
