Distribution Database
From the late 1960s the London Film-makers' Co-op, The Other Cinema, LVA, Circles, Cinema of Women, Film and Video Umbrella, Cinenova, London Electronic Arts and Lux, together with a number of other organisations and initiatives, helped build the reputation of British artists' and independent film and video at home and abroad. On the Film & Video Distribution Database (FVDD) you can explore the histories of these organisations and initiatives, their promotional activities, their distribution and exhibition practices, the inroads they made into television and galleries, the challenges they overcame to build audiences, and the arts funding landscape that could cause them to sink or swim (see Scope for more details).
