BLC Library of Foreign Language Film Clips

What is the LFLFC?

LFLFC stands for the BLC (Berkeley Language Center Library of Foreign Language Film Clips (LFLFC). It is a tagged, structured collection of clips from foreign language films.

Princeton University is one of the institutions that has access to database and clips. These  clips are intended for the sole use of instructors so that they can use them as part of their foreign language course curriculum. These clips can be used only within the Fair Use Guidelines of U.S. Copyright Law. Currently the database is accessible only to faculty and graduate student instructors at participating institutions like Princeton University. The way it works is that you can search LFLFC  for certain clips. Tags and summaries (and even comments from the community) are attached to the already created clips. LFLFC  allows us, since we are a participating institution, the ability to use these clips for 2 week periods in courses. Currently you can only request the clips that are already digitized by LFC. It is a great database and the professional cataloging of the films in their native language is stunning in itself.

If you are a faculty member at Princeton, we encourage you to check out this great resource and create an account: http://blcvideoclips.berkeley.edu/
