Hidden Cabinet Films

big ideas in unexpected places


Hidden Cabinet Films, Co. is a nonprofit video production company founded in June 2016 and based in Hamden, Connecticut. Our name is meant to suggest a mystery revealed. It’s also a reference to “Hidden Fortress” and “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”—and to an actual hidden cabinet found during a home renovation project just below the Hidden Cabinet office.

We produce humanistic documentary video essays and podcasts for educational, scientific, and literary purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The primary subjects of our small-scale, micro-budget films are rare books, historical and humanistic legal topics, and issues of broad historical and humanistic significance that foster individual learning and community instruction on subjects of public intellectual benefit. Our films stand gently outside traditional documentary formats, and are all available at no cost online.

Our EIN is 81-2657895.
