Lost Films is a collection of film titles believed to be lost. Members can help identify unknown films, add information, and contribute more titles.

Lost Films is a new online project that collects and documents film titles believed to be missing. Funded by the German Federal Cultural Association, it is a collaborative effort by film societies in Germany, France, Poland, New Zealand and other countries. The archive currently contains over 3500 lost films. By using this portal, it is hoped that many films can be identified by the public through crowdsourcing. Members can submit film titles, video clips and images from unknown movies, or add and update information to ones already uploaded.

The site estimates that between 80 and 90% of all silent films, as well as a number of sound films, are irretrievably lost. Those that have been found or identified are listed to show the good work and positive contributions of the Lost Films members. So far, 56 films have been found and 72 have been identified.
