Hi there! Thanks for clicking here. 

If you are enjoying the films on this website and you’d like to see the archive continue to grow you can help rarefilmm financially by making a donation, you can do so via BuyMeACoffee (Debit/Credit Card and Google Pay/Link only payment options available atm), the minimum donation with BMAC is of $3 (USD).

or via Paypal, email:

For crypto donations:

LTC: LbgWxMH4AwXaNpsTSwv1AQ35sbARZLVpgP.

All donations are greatly appreciated and no amount is too small, everything helps, it truly does. rarefilmm is a crowdfunded project, donations are and always have been essential to keep the site online, without them I wouldn’t have been able to keep the site up for so long (started in early 2014 and still going strong!), all the money collected will be used to pay for the site’s maintenance costs (RDP server, web hosting, premium cloud storage accounts and other site-related costs) if there’s any remains I will also be looking at the possibility of acquiring rare movies & vintage TV material from different sources, there’s a lot of private collectors out there who have very rare films that very few people have seen but unfortunately they aren’t willing to share them for free so with your help I will be able to purchase many films from them and finally liberate them to the world for everyone’s enjoyment.

Thank you! And thanks a lot to everyone for all the support throughout the years, you guys are amazing.

– Jon.

    Hello Jon,

    Thank you for all the work you do here.

    I wanted to ask for your permission to link this site when writing about films that I have watched from here. I don’t have much of a following but I just wanted to start a Substack for friends who may be interested in checking these films out.

      Hi Ryan,
      Sure! That’s a very nice thing of you to do to introduce your friends to rarefilmm, doesn’t matter if you have a site/following that’s small, actually rarefilmm has always grown this way, by word of mouth really and not so much but other sites or people who have huge following so eveything counts and it’s greatly appreciated 🙂 Thanks a lot for the support.

      Take care,

    Hi Jon,
    Thank you for the wonderful Christmas gifts. Fourteen new discoveries for us classic movie crazies to take a gander at during this Christmas/Award season. As I sit listening to Saint-Saens’ magnificent Christmas Oratorio, I’m reminded that the most remarkable gifts are always unexpected. Bless you, sir.

    All the Best for the Holidays,

    Keith Dillon

    Hi Jon,
    I recently discovered your website and am very grateful to you for the many films you have made available. I have been making experimental film for the past 50 years and most of them are on YouTube however the film that I frequently get requests for I cannot upload to youtube as it contains popular music and would be taken down for copyright infringement. I would be very pleased if you could put it on your website.
    If you send me a postal address I could send you a USB with a High Definitian version of the film with a still and an accompanying text. The film entitled “The Mystical Rose” has been shown in many festivals in Europe and the Americas and has generated critical articles which is why I get many requests for access to it. For more information about me go to
    Hope to hear from you soon.

        Did this ever get sent? I have been looking for this film for some time and this seems like a promising development.
