Where might I get or mirror a dump of Commons media files?

I'm looking for a few examples of *video* files contributed to Commons
recording a lecture, performance, or other *non-Wikimedia* event at
(ideally) a library, or a museum or archive. There are several recordings
of Wikimedia workshops and talks given at GLAMs, but I'm interested in an
example of a non-Wikimedia event held at a GLAM, whose recording was
released under a free license and contributed to Commons.
I spent a good half an hour trying various category maneuvers to find
something like that, but failed. Do you maybe have an example you are
aware of that you could point to?
