International Video Collection

video exchange

The first videos deposited in the Video Inn Library were 76 open reel video tapes brought by attendees to Vancouver’s 1973 International MATRIX Video Conference. The Library provided in-house viewing facilities and continued to grow its collection with contacts made through the international network built by its Video Exchange Directory.

The current collection reflects the interests and activities of the Centre. It contains video produced by its membership at the centre, titles distributed by Video Out, videos by artists who have engaged with the centre through residencies , symposia or exhibitions, and materials solicited by collective members over the course of their own research or travels. Today the collection is comprised of approximately 4500 titles. While 70% of our videos are from British Columbia artists, the collection is international in scope.
