Hi VideoLib members,

(This is my first post to the VideoLib list -- I think/hope it's within
the guidelines. I'm super excited to be on this list!)

As part of Frameline's commitment to providing educators and students
with more independent LGBT media, we're excited to announce that, for
the next six months, we're offering free access to full-length streaming
films on our website.

Each month, we'll upload two films -- usually a documentary and a
narrative short -- exclusively for our email subscribers. These
high-quality streaming films are password-protected, but we encourage
you to share the link and password with your colleagues and friends.

Our first two films are currently live:

    This fun South Korean short about love at first sight, complete with
    an animated musical interlude that's bound to make you smile!

                 (available through December 15, 2009)

    This fascinating documentary explores Byron Chief-Moon's identity as
    a First Nations two-spirited man, dance artist and father in which
    his art and his life continuously cross boundaries.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
