Use UW Libraries Advanced Search when looking for films and follow this example -- change "Show Only" option to UW Libraries  and "Material Type" to Audio & Video. Type in search terms -- this can be the title of a film, director, keywords or genre (type of film such as horror films). Search results will include DVD, VHS and streaming. Those with the location "Suzzallo and Allen Libraries Media Storage" can be requested at the main circulation (check-out) desk on the first floor of Suzzallo Library. For more information on locating films at the UW Libraries see the Video & Streaming Video guide. For more information about researching film see the Cinema Studies research guide
