This is a fan-based X Files music video community where enthusiasts, new, and experienced video creators can share X-Files music videos, as well as exchange recommendations, reviews, and technical and creative ideas.
We welcome all pairings and genres of X-Files music videos, including but not restricted to: character (Mulder/Scully, Doggett/Reyes, villains, supporting characters, etc), action, mytharc, behind-the-scenes, angst, and more! At this time, we do not accept actor videos (i.e. only David Duchovny or Gillian Anderson's non-XF work). However, we will accept actor videos that somehow pertain to the X-Files (i.e. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson attending The Golden Globes, and winning for Best Drama series).
