The video revolution in the 1980s affected all areas of the American entertainment industry; its impact was most dramatic--ultimately devastating--to the non-theatrical film field. Non-theatrical film is the term used to describe motion pictures which are not shown in movie theaters, but are produced and/or distributed to markets that include the educational community, home, and business and industry. The author covers the early Hollywood-produced features and short subjects in a format other than 35mm for homes, hospitals and correctional institutions, as well as industrial films. This is also the history of two major non-theatrical libraries, Bell and Howell and Kodascope, both of which were founded to service the needs of purchasers of the then-newly introduced 16mm projectors.

The book documents how the advent of the 16mm projector made possible the introduction of audio-visual aids in classrooms and offices. A number of production companies were established, primarily in Chicago, to produce films for this new outlet. In addition, Hollywood saw a new market and began licensing distribution of the films. Complete with appendices providing distributors from the 1920s-1940s and current names and addresses of non-theatrical film sources, this book-length study of the history of this film genre is both important and much needed.

About the Author:

ANTHONY SLIDE has held executive positions with both the American Film Institute and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Hanson, Greenwood, 1988), The International Film Industry (Greenwood, 1989), and The Television Industry (Greenwood, 1991). Slide has also been active in the 16mm field. He has directed three short documentaries on Hollywood film personalities and in 1991 completed a feature length documentary, The Silent Feminists: America's First Women Directors.
