Footage & Content Finder

For a fast and FREE way to locate the content you need, simply fill in the form below and your request will go out to over 140 libraries. Those libraries able to supply the material requested should reply within 24-48 hours, but, please note, every library charges different rates for preview or master material and licences will depend on the amount of material to be supplied, the use, the territory and the length of the licence period.

NB. English is understood by most of our library members, so if you use any other language, your request may not be dealt with so speedily.

TIP: please be very specific about the shots you need and the context you want to use them in. If you put in general requests like World War II or Berlin Wall which so many libraries have, they will be wasting their time and yours as they will have too much to offer!

After you've sent the request, try looking at the Directory for access to all our library members' on-line databases, or talk to the contacts listed. If you are working on a major project we recommend that you hire one of FOCAL International's 130 professional researcher members. The FOCAL International Directory lists their contact details, or, you can use the Footage Skills & Services Finder.
