    Upload Cinema is a monthly gig in Amsterdam where organizers Barbara de Wijn and Dagan Cohen take web videos to the big screen. It’s 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 ‘Top 36 (plus one NSFW) viral videos of 2008‘.

    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:
