    This resource is an extensive, freely available, collection of clips, essays, biographies and other writings about British-based artists’ work in film and video. Users can browse by artist, work title, or via themes such as abstraction and installation. The site also features a historical timeline of key events in artists’ film and video from 1900- present day, and virtual tours created by leading curators and writers (such as novelist Ali Smith on Margaret Tait). The site has not been updated since 2009 so some of the links may be out of date but the core content of the resource remains valuable and relevant.

    This site archives the feminist film fanzine, or ‘video chainletter’ created by Miranda July and a network of female filmmakers during the 1990s and early 2000s. Originally called ‘Big Miss Movieola’, then changed to ‘Joanie4Jackie’ following legal threats from the owner of the Movieola brand, the project began when July issued a ‘challenge and a promise’ to other filmmakers: ‘Lady, you send me your movie and I’ll send you the latest Big Miss Moviola Chainletter Tape’. In addition to digitised versions of the chainletter tapes themselves, the site features extensive contextual material, including posters, letters, press, documentary films about the project and interviews with participants.

    Launched in 2015, this resource is the largest single source of information on films produced in and about the Caribbean, featuring information on more than 500 films from the English, Dutch, French and Spanish-speaking Caribbean. Entries feature, synopsis, production details, brief credits and cast information and most are accompanied by excerpts or trailers. The focus is on contemporary film, so most of the films are post-2000 but a Classic Films section includes films reflecting the region’s rich cinematic history, from well-known titles like The Harder They Come to less widely recognised examples such as Haïti, le chemin de la liberté, the first Haitian feature film. The database features examples from the Caribbean diaspora, so films set in the UK, such as Babylon also feature. A section on Caribbean Women in Film highlights the work of female directors and a there are also links to information about film festivals, film schools and a bibliography.
