Artsy Fartsy Films

I recently was browsing the web and came across this now defunct blog. I never knew that people could actually get art films like this and in turn post them on the web (I knew but I didn't know, you know?) Now I want to find a place where I can find these films but I am coming up short.

Does anyone know a blog, torrent site or any other method to find such films? Where do you go to find about these art films? I would love to download and watch these films. I have been to ubu and while they have a ton of really great films in their archives, I am looking for more contemporary things or things that they don't have. Pierre Huyghe is a good example of what I am looking for. Any pointers you can give me would be great appreciated!

Ubu web may be what you're looking for.

You could try, they have a lot of films available? Also if you know what you're looking for, YouTube it - there are a surprising number posted there, sometimes hidden under the original language title or in a version of the title with a numbers and sp3c!al ch4r4ct3rs in it.

Response by poster: Thanks so much for the responses so far! Are there any torrent sites that have good quality downloads of that I could download and in turn put on DVD for future viewing? It seems like torrents sites are the way to go here.

Try your local venues. Maybe I have always been lucky to be in microcosms of cinematic nirvana but one of the big universities in the city I live has an impressive schedule of films every school year. It has turned me onto films that would be very hard to find elsewhere. A few other examples like The Doc or my favorite, Cine Dore can't stand alone in the universe.

Has almost everything, but you'll probably need an invite
