Browsing for Foreign Language Films

Foreign language films may often be searched by both their foreign and english title in our catalog.

However, it's more difficult to search online for all of the films in a particular language. For this reason we have shelved foreign language films in groups under their primary language, and then organized alphabetically by title. Below is a list of call numbers for the most common languages represented in our collection.
