Kino.social is a quiet site where you can watch nice films without any distractions or tracking:

kino.social

All of the movies are creative commons or public domain titles, embedded from either PeerTube or Archive.org. (There are no YouTube titles due to YT's invasive privacy policies.)

The selection is still very small as we've just started, and we're trying to avoid the "firehose" approach of archive.org.

Post a reply if you have suggestions for films to be added.

@kinosocial Awesome idea! :-) Should it work to follow new uploads on Kino.social from a Mastodon account so I get a new post every time a new film is uploaded?

@MacLemon

Yes, that's the idea! 👍

Films will be gradually added with a new post for each.

@kinosocial Haxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages is available on the Internet Archive

@kinosocial

I feel that firehose when I'm looking for stuff on the Archive. So many remixes, it's hard to find the originals sometimes.

I'll recommend the #publicdomain Superman cartoons and Max Fleischer's Gulliver's Travels if they make your curator's cut.

@Thunderfree

Added Gulliver's Travels:

It seems there are a lot of the Fleischer Superman cartoons, is there a particular one that stands out?

@kinosocial

"The Mechanical Monsters" stands out for a few reasons and has been referenced in more recent media.

@kinosocial No Gods No Masters is good...

With a caveat. I want to know who the actress in the photo is, the lady that's holding a bomb.

She's cute as a fucking button.
@kinosocial Unless, photos those days were kind of a ghost writer/anonymity sort of deal.

Not sure if I'd have to know more French to find out who she is.

@kinosocial #Vodo.net is also a good source of freely-licensed films
* 'Us Now' (2008) documentary: vodo.net/ivo/usnow/
* 'One Mile Away' (2012) documentary: vodo.net/britdoc/OMA/

@kinosocial Sounds great!

I'm definitely checking it out, and I'll want to recommend you to newcomers to my browser.

@kinosocial
Detour! The essence of film noir distilled into 67 minutes!

I've compared the three versions on archive.org, and this one is the best:
