Do you know any interesting video that has been banned for political, religious, ethical or any other reason? Please send us a link. When found allegeable after screening by our editorial team, the video will be added to the website's playlist.
You will be notified when your video is accepted.
Every day 3 billion videos are watched, every minute 48 hours of video are Uploaded on YouTube alone. Amongst those millions of videos circulating on the web occasionally videos are removed. Not only because intellectual rights are being violated, but also because in some cases their content is deemed 'inappropriate' by governments or organizations.
Banned Videos is an ongoing project that aims to collect and show videos around the world that have been removed (or attempted to be removed) from the web, whether for political religious or ethical reasons. Anyone can contribute to the project by submitting a banned video. On a regular basis videos from the collection will be screened at cinemas, exhibitions and at relevant conferences. By doing so we hope to give a voice to those who have been silenced by others.
Banned Videos is part of Impakt festival 2011. It is initiated and curated by Dagan Cohen, artist/ advertising creative and founder of Amsterdam based Upload Cinema. The project is commissioned by Sabine Niederer, curator of Impakt online. Web designer is Kimberley Spreeuwenberg, technical realisation by Koen Martens.
