To find such films, use an Advanced Title Search:
http://www.imdb.com/search/title

Here is and example of the list of films before 31 December 1920.

Short Films/Feature Films Released 1 January 1890 to 31 December 1920
Sorted by United States Release Date Ascending
74,260

http://www.imdb.com/search/title?count=250&release_date=1890-01-01,1920-12-31&sort=release_d...

Short Films/Feature Films Released In 1913

Unfortunately, IMDb is not a film repository. There is no one place to view these films. In addition, a large portion of films no longer exist.

DD's answer covers finding them, if you want to watch them...

I'd check on the Internet Archive or YouTube - a Google video search will cover both. If a film is public domain and available, it should be on there.
