Collection of 121 French film magazines acquired by NFAI
‘Donate such material’
NFAI, using this occasion, has appealed to film lovers and collectors to come forward and donate such material to the archive so that it could be preserved for the use of future generations.
Pune: The National Film Archive of India (NFAI) has acquired a rich collection of 121 French film magazines from the 1970s and 80s.
The collection comprises of 53 editions of La Revue du Cinema, 58 editions of Ecran and 10 editions of Le Nouveau Cinemonde. This collection was acquired by NFAI, courtesy of renowned Indian poet and editor Adil Jussawalla.
“An invaluable addition to the archive’s ever-growing collection, these magazines are a great source of insight and knowledge on cinema,” said Prakash Magdum, Director, NFAI.
Adorned with gorgeous covers featuring well known stars of the world cinema ranging from Catherine Deneuve to Al Pacino to Takashi
Shimura, these magazines offer a complete fresh insight into the magical world of cinema.
Even though all these issues were published in the 70s and 80s, they feature writings on older classics, including Un Chien
Andalou (1929), Man with a Movie Camera (1929) and Ikiru (1952).
