The FIAF Databases Online is a group of databases from the International Federation of Film Archives, bringing together contributions from experts around the world dedicated to film preservation, cataloguing and documentation.

The FIAF Databases include:
- International Index to Film Periodicals (quarterly updates)
- International Index to Television Periodicals
- List of Periodicals Indexed (quarterly updates)
- Treasures from the Film Archives (annual updates)
- Bibliography of FIAF Affiliates Publications (annual updates)
- International Directory of Film and TV Documentation Collections (annual updates)

The main database, the International Index to Film Periodicals, is for any film researcher and contains a diverse range of specialist content: over 500,000 article citations from more than 345 periodicals. It offers in-depth coverage of the world's foremost academic and popular film journals, many of which are seamlessly linked to a growing library of film journals. Each entry consists of a full bibliographic description, an abstract and comprehensive headings (biographical names, film titles and general subjects).

The International Index to Television Periodicals includes approximately 50,000 article references from 1979 to 2006. Full bibliographic description and headings are given for each entry and a separate thesaurus is offered. Please note that this database is no longer updated and that television related references from film journals continue to be indexed in the International Index to Film Periodicals.

The List of Periodicals Indexed is a separate database which provides addresses and other information (including ISSN) on the journals indexed in the two main databases: International Index to Film and TV Periodicals.

The Treasures from the Film Archives database contains unique information about silent film holdings in international film archives. It was conceived as a tool to aid the work of preservation, research and film exchange between archives, and provides filmographic and holdings information on over 40,000 works. Included are silent shorts and features, fiction and non-fiction, from over 100 of the world's major film archives.

The Bibliography of FIAF Affiliates Publications contains full annotated bibliographic citations to various materials published since 1966 by FIAF archives, and is updated annually.
