Slow Cinema Filmography (1975-2013)

A comprehensive list of 258 films belonging to the Slow Cinema canon, compiled from Orhan Emre Çağlayan's PhD thesis Screening Boredom: The History and Aesthetics of Slow Cinema for the University of Kent. The titles are arranged chronologically.
It should be noted here that the term Slow Cinema isn't my personal subjective definition of narrative pacing, but rather refers to a very particular subgenre of filmmaking whose "aesthetic features include a mannered use of the long take and a resolute emphasis on dead time", as is explained in Çağlayan's thesis.
