Unlocking the European Film Vault

Thanks to Europa Film Trea­sures, you can spend hours look­ing back through an archive of Euro­pean film. The­ses films range from “com­e­dy to sci­ence fic­tion, from west­erns to ani­ma­tion, from erot­ic to eth­no­log­i­cal movies.” And all films come with a fair amount of back­ground infor­ma­tion. And yes, of course, you can stream these films online and watch them in the com­fort of your own home.

For a taste of what this archive is all about, watch Jön az öcsém, a 1919 film by Michael Cur­tiz, who lat­er went on to direct Casablan­ca! For more, enter the gen­er­al col­lec­tion here.
