|Hi, everyone! Welcome to this growing and morphing collaborative resource! A note upfront that google limits the number of people accessing it to 100 at any given time, and traffic has been growing and growing, so I have had to make this list view-only (at least for now) and change how people can add new films to the list (see below for details).|
If you are here to access the list in more of a reading/learning capacity, please download it (File > Download > [select the format you want to download]) and then close this tab *OR* download a recent version of it from http://www.katemakesfilms.com/cabinfever/
If there are experimental films or works of video art that you’d like to suggest for the playlist, you can use this form: https://forms.gle/1M4y1qzfCNn4mKGP6. Please note that I have a lot going on in addition to maintaining the playlist, so I may not be able to make additions right away. I’ll update as often as I can, though!
The initial intention of this list was to gather some experimental films together based on moods one might be experiencing while being cooped up. The list has morphed some, with some great new categories having been added to the mix. I love it!! I do hope that the original goal of feeding emotional needs and fostering virtual connectivity continues to be the salient purpose of the document.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE SUPPORT ARTISTS!!**
If you are enjoying movies on this playlist and are in a position to be able to spare some money, I hope that you will consider reaching out to individual artists whose work you are watching and find out how you can donate money to them in appreciation of their creative contributions. Perhaps they have websites with donation links or contact info. Maybe you can find them via social media. Please reach out. So many of us artists are in precarious financial positions even in regular times, and the COVID-19 pandemic only exacerbates the situation. There are also many moving image artists who are not in a position to make their work free to view right now and are thus not on this list, and I encourage you to find ways to support them as well. Love and solidarity to the global experimental film community.
Happy viewing to all!! Stay safe, wash your hands, be kind.
(If you have questions or anything, feel free to drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am needing to be away from email for good chunks of the day, so I may not be able to reply right away, but I’ll get back to you just as soon as I can!)
