One of the missions of CCJ is to offer access to research resources about Japanese experimental moving image. In the "Database" project, CCJ imagines a web platform that acts as a portal to existing institutional collection information, and provides descriptive information about the works, the artists, and the historical contexts, as well as archival materials, interviews, and essays. CCJ has organized Working Group meetings with experts in the field to discuss the potential of such project. The Prototype is expected to open to the public in spring 2019.
