Are you considering un-realized scripts? If so, then Joseph Cornell.
Also, Yoko Ono (see Scott MacDonald's book - Screen Writings I think - Sorry

What about "films" that only exist as a soundtrack? There is Maurice
Lamaitre's film (again, not sure of the title but Pip can chime in on this)
Song of Rio Jim.
