New York's Museum of the Moving Image has launched its major new film site, Moving Image Source. According to the museum's press release, Moving Image Source will be "devoted to the history of film, television, and digital media," and will feature "original articles by leading critics, authors, and scholars; a calendar that highlights major retrospectives, festivals, and gallery exhibitions at venues around the world; and a regularly updated guide to online research resources." Congratulations to editor-in-chief Dennis Lim in pulling together this massive project, and a special shout-out to Reverse Shot staff writers Chris Wisniewski (the Museum’s Director of Education) for his work with Lim in developing the site’s Research Guide, and Leo Goldsmith, who also helped out on the Research Guide.
So, go ahead and start poking around, as there's a lot of stuff to read, including Jonathan Rosenbaum on that brilliant gonzo William Klein, Chris Fujiwara on that handsome devil Tatsuya Nakadai, Michael Chaiken on that Hollywood outsider Arthur Penn, and Reverse Shot's co-founder and co-editor Michael Koresky on the brilliant British filmmaker Terence Davies.
Look for the site to be updated with more new material in the coming weeks.
