The pre-print online database will be a free access repository where anyone will be able to add a film entry. Editors will be able to edit entries related to their region or genre. They will be able to use the database to source material for the print and PDF components of the project. Intellect staff will be able to edit all entries.

    * 12 volumes from 2012 onwards
