20 Open Source Movies You Can Edit and Redistribute for Free

[ Thanks to An

“Open Source Movies, also called Open Content Movies or
simply Open Movies are, as the name suggests, movies that enable
the end user to view and edit the production materials.
Philosophically speaking, Open Movies share the same notion that
lies at the heart of open source softwares. However, they are not
as popular as open source softwares. As a matter of fact, they are
so rare that after a decade of their presence, there are roughly
dozens of them available. Apparently, Free/Libre/Open source
community, a community that is so proud of itself for producing
quality alternatives to proprietary products has failed to realize
the importance of open movie movement.

“So here we are, a blog post dedicated to open movies. I believe
that open source advocates as well as movie fans will enjoy the
creativity and freedom delivered by open films. If you haven’t seen
any open source movie before, this is my general advice: Approach
them with open minds. Do not expect too much as they are produced
by limited financial and technical resources. Ergo, it’s kind of
unfair to compare these movies with Hollywood commercial movies. Do
not judge too quickly and try to look for the meaning behind
them.
