Bibliographies & Filmographies

Bibliographies vs. Filmographies: What's the difference?

Bibliographies feature lists of books & other resources on a particular topic, like film genres, directors, film styles, etc.

Filmographies offer lists of films on a particular topic, but do not include resources about those films. They are simply lists of films arranged by subject matter.
