The Amateur Movie Database aims to chart the history of amateur Basque film by exploring and researching its works, filmmakers, film clubs and festivals. Focusing first on the local level, the aim is to eventually compile an exhaustive map covering all three Basque provinces (Álava, Guipúzcoa and Vizcaya), reflecting the history and development of this cinematographic field that has received very little attention to date, despite its prominent cultural, social and political importance.

The original project, set in motion by the University of Calgary (Canada), has developed a network of research tools aimed at recovering and attaching value to the history of amateur film in North America. By collaborating with different sources (magazines, catalogues, programmes, etc.), the project has created a movie database which has in turn enabled researchers to locate people and entities that still conserve amateur film collections, characterised by generally being disperse and difficult to access.
