The Philosophy and Film Database


The Philosophy and Film Database contains details of around 500 films which can be used to enhance philosophy teaching at all levels. In addition, a small number of entries list other available visual material, including television shows and filmed interviews

Each entry includes a PLOT SUMMARY, a summary of the subject matter covered by the film, and an indication of its philosophical relevance. For a number of films, KEY SCENES have also been identified.
