from The Very Short List

LOST FILMS is a new internet portal aimed at collecting and documenting film titles, which are believed or have been declared “lost”. The ARCHIVE currently contains over 3500 entries, a number of which are extensively illustrated with surviving documents contributed by archives and individuals worldwide. 


The IDENTIFY section contains images and short video clips of around 50 unknown or unidentified films, which face the danger of also becoming lost if not identified by members. The aim of LOST FILMS is not to produce a definitive list of lost films but to provide a platform where members can frequently – and freely – exchange, add and update information.
