Library of Foreign Language Film Clips

Instructors interested in incorporating film into their instruction have a number of resources available to them at Columbia. See this LRC Blog post for more info on accessing films in Columbia's Library Reserves: Using Film in Foreign Language Instruction at Columbia (and beyond!)

Getting Started with the LFLFC

Once you have an account created, you can access the LFLFC's collection of 14, 500 film clips drawn from 415 films in 23 languages. Note: the LFLFC is accessible only to Columbia faculty and students.

Dr Mark Kaiser's Presentation at Columbia

Please see Mark Kaiser's talk from April, 2013 for a helpful overview of the LFLFC, and some wonderful pedagogical approaches to incorporating it into your curriculum.

Dr. Mark Kaiser, Associate Director of the Berkeley Language Center, presented on Developing Student Competencies Through Film Clips, using Berkeley's Library of Foreign Language Film Clips (LFLFC).

This presentation makes the case that film, and in particular clips cut from feature films, are an underutilized resource in the foreign language curriculum. In particular, he discusses the potential of film as a resource to develop students’ linguistic, communicative, cultural, semiotic and symbolic competencies, using examples from French, Russian, Japanese and Arabic films. The presentation also serves as an introduction to the BLC’s Library of Foreign Language Film Clips (LFLFC), a searchable, annotatable database of 14, 500 film clips drawn from 415 films in 23 languages. The database is available free to faculty at other institutions through institutional agreement.
