Art Films online


Cinematic Film has a large series of short, arty films available online. All the ones I saw were in Quicktime, and lasted 2-5 minutes. They did not load particularly fast, although it was much better at night. They claim they have 60 hours of film available online.

I recommend Chris Oakley's The Catalogue, which is a short commentary on our fascination with surveillance technology as a cure for all ills. Although if you do watch it, then you should mute your sound until after the color bars disappear — don't know if that's art or just crappy post-production. All of Oakley's films touch on the potential futures that we could have with technology.
