Best sites for vintage footage (1983 and beyond)

A client of mine asked if I could make a video where I compile about 10 vintage clips of people from 1983 and beyond. These clips could be people dancing, laughing, really anything "fun". I'd be putting text over top of the clips. I've been looking for a bit and haven't had much success. My question is what are the best sites to use find free/great vintage video?

Have you taken a look at the Internet Archive ? I think most of their footage is public domain, so it can be repurposed for other uses.

You'll have great luck on archive.org with public domain things, but not much in the most recent 70 or so years. You'll probably need to turn to stock footage sites for more recent "vintage" video, and that will depend on budget.
