Upload Cinema¬†is a monthly gig in Amsterdam where organizers Barbara de Wijn and Dagan Cohen take web videos to the big screen. It‚Äôs sponsored by Amsterdam advertising agency¬†Draftfcb¬†and invitation only, however you can apply for membership¬†here. We try to go the every one and show you a list of movies shows there. Also see all the videos from the previous edition titled¬†‚ÄėTop 36 (plus one NSFW) viral videos of 2008‚Äė.

February 2nd (this Monday) was a trip down memory lane of the future. Though quite some current future visions we’re screened, like BMW’s Gina and the Minority Report inspired G-Speak, the editorial team clearly had a soft spot for past future visions, showing video’s like Leonardo Da Vinci’s Automobile and Visioning A Web In 1934.

Almost 200 films were submitted, 37 were selected and shown. Here they all are:
