    Upload CinemaUpload Cinema takes the best of the web to the big screen. Every first Monday of the month a fresh program of inspiring and entertaining internet shorts is screened at Movie Theater De Uitkijk in Amsterdam. Each month there is a new theme. The audience can submit videos; an editorial team selects the best.

    On May 4th (as the Dutch memorialize the dead of WO II) Upload Cinema looked at the way death is eternalized on the web. Yes, there was war & terror, blood & guts, but also art & poetry, impressive death rituals and lots of black humor. From 141 entries, 36 were chosen. Guest curators were: journalist Ben de Dood and poet Frank Starik.
