This site contains a tiny sampling of the thousands of exciting films that can be viewed or sourced, free, on the internet. The choice reflects my own enthusiasms, interests and current work and these pages serve me as a quick reference and source of inspiration.
Many of the films in this collection are sourced from the Internet Archive, whose library contains thousands of digital movies uploaded by Archive users. These range from classic full-length films, to daily alternative news broadcasts, cartoons and concerts, most available under a Creative Commons Licence. The British Film Institute has made dozens of fine films available for viewing via the Daily Motion website. A wonderful place to lose oneself for hours in ravishing films is the vast archive at Ubu. Many art films sourced from Ubu are also made available via the Virtual Circuit site. YouTube and Vimeo have some hard-to-find material.
Finally, here also are films and previews made available by friends, documentaries like Atomic City by Micha Patault and After the Apocalypse by Antony Butts and Magnus Westerberg’s short film, “Eat”.
