Due to the increased copyright protections enacted over the past year and a half, locating films online has become near impossible. At least the films that we are interested in screening. So, unfortunately, the original intent of Seminal Cinema Outfit – to showcase the wonderful films that are available on the internet – must be retired.
However, we are not dead.
SCO will now exist as a publishing platform and screening events company. By moving away from showcasing free films, we will now be able to work towards non-profit status. There was hesitancy to seek this status due to the legal ramifications that SCO could face by hosting free films; even if they were of third-party origin.
Our new objectives:
- Publish a collection of our top reviews from SCO writers
- Host a screening every other month
- Collaborate with film festivals and universities to increase film education
- Establish nonprofit status and eventual residency for a permanent screening house
These goals, obviously, are far-reaching and will take time to complete. We appreciate your continued support and patience.
Thank you and look below to explore what Seminal Cinema Outfit has to offer!
