18/ Catalog Project

As a librarian who has supported students working in areas such as film studies, audio visual translation and video performance art, I know how difficult it can be to find video and film in specialist areas. Although traditionally produced and distributed film is pretty easy to find (with anything broadcast on television especially easy to get hold of), tracing artist or experimental films has always presented a challenge.

Which is why I’m so impressed by CATALOG, a new project that provides a curated collection of experimental films freely available through the filmmakers’ Vimeo profiles. All films have even been tagged for ease of searching – whether silent film, animation or self-portraits.

With a new film being added daily, the collection is growing rapidly. Additionally, with the variety of films being added, in different genres and from different places around the world, the collection will provide an experimental film of interest to anyone looking before long!

CATALOG is curated by Italian filmmaker Stefano Miraglia.
