film/video sources? (prompted by a recent reference question)

I think I got this particular patron squared away, but now I’m wondering in general… What are good resources for finding old film/video? I know about the video available on Internet Archive, but what about other resources, especially for government-produced film?

The Hobbit production shoots 6-12TB of camera data per day. And the shooting schedule (for both parts of the two-part film) involves 265 days of principal photography.
