Feeding many of our creative projects, the Unpopular Archive gathers, preserves and repurposes media deemed “obsolete”: 16mm and 8mm film and projectors, filmstrips, VHS tapes, slides, vinyl, 78s and acetates.

The collection includes educational films, student film projects and home movies, early sound comedies and cartoons, celebrity LPs,  Canadiana, and antique corporate media.

We present our collection frequently at public screenings, "film jams" and other events. We also DJ. Get in touch at jc@unpopulararts.com if you would like to host a presentation.

You can enjoy many samples of the archive on our Youtube channel.
