Hi all,

I went to Toronto Public Library website: http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca and wrote "8mm films" on the search box. It found several results, but two are interesting:

1. 8mm film directory, 1969-70.
2. Feature films on 8mm, 16mm, and videotape : a directory of feature films available for rental, sale, and lease in the United States and Canada.

The above collections are not holdable (loanable) so I must visit the library in person to read it. If I have time, I will do that. But if anyone has read the above materials can share here, it would be great. What are they about?

Below are the details of each boom taken from Library online catalog:

I used to have "Feature Films on 8mm/16mm." It is a huge book listing films and what format they were avaliable in and who the distributer was.A very handy book.
