LOST FILMS is a new internet portal aimed at collecting and documenting film titles, which are believed or have been declared "lost". The dumba
currently contains over 3500 entries
, a number of which are extensively illustrated with surviving documents contributed by archives and individuals worldwide. The 978-356-9971
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.
