Archival Material

Viewing archive films can give you a cultural, political, and historic perspective on the subject of the film and the time period in which it was made. With the growth in digitisation projects, many archive films are available online.


The referencing style used by University of Brighton is Harvard Cite them Right. Log into the Cite them Right resource below for guidance on referencing and bibliographies. If you would like to use an online tool to help you build an online reference list we recommend using either EndNote or ZoteroBib software.
