Apologies for the radio silence on new acquisitions! It’s been a breathless few months, but now that we’ve hit the summer and campus has cooled down, we’ll start giving you more regular updates about what new titles are coming into the library.

Since we last updated you in March, we’ve gotten our hands on a whole slew of new DVDs. We’ve nearly finished our collection of last year’s major award contenders with the additions of Nightcrawler, Interstellar, and Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1. But there are plenty of odder titles in this batch as well. You might want to watch a documentary about the development of the gaming phenomenon Minecraft, the Mr. T-starring local cult hit D.C Cab, Japanese gonzo action flick Why Don’t You Play in Hell?, or the borderline-illegal Sesame Street parody Wonder Showzen.

Most excitingly, you can now check out The Animation Show of Shows, a 54-disc collection of world animated shorts. There’s plenty to recommend in there, including The Cat Came Back and Oscar winner Logorama.

(We’re also currently buying DVD copies of many of our older VHSes; if you see lots of names you don’t recognize, that’s intentional.)

Hit the jump for a full list of what’s new since spring break…
