Forgive cross-postings:

The Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival is pleased to 
announce that the


is now available on the YIDFF web site at:


The database is currently composed of over 300 documentary works from all 
over the globe submitted to the YIDFF '97, and includes synopses, staff 
information, technical details, and contact addresses for each entry.  
Films only appear in the database if the person submitting the work gave 
such permission on the entry form.  We plan to add more films from YIDFF 
'99 (taking place this October 19-25 in Yamagata, Japan) in due time. It 
is our hope that this database will assist a wide variety of individuals 
and organizations studying, producing, and programming documentary cinema.

The database is searchable on-line, although searches are currently 
limited only to the title, director's name, country, and keyword for the 
synopsis field.  

When visiting the database, please also check out information on this 
year's festival as well as the other features of the site, including the 
full text of our journal, DOCUMENTARY BOX.
