Moving Image Source Offers Comprehensive Resource For Cinephiles

The Museum of the Moving Image (MMI) that recently broke ground for its $65 million renovation-expansion in Astoria, announced today Moving Image Source, a new website devoted to the history of film, television, and digital media. Supported by the Hazen Polsky Foundation, Moving Image Source features 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.

The launch of Moving Image Source will be marked by a special program at The Times Center in Manhattan at 6:30 p.m. on June 5, featuring a conversation between directors Werner Herzog and Jonathan Demme. MMI Director Rochelle Slovin and Moving Image Source editor-in-chief Dennis Lim will introduce the program with an illustrated overview of the new site.

I just took a gander at the site, and it's quite comprehensive and informative. This is a must bookmark for any cinephile. And while the Research Guide offers many links to external resources, I didn't see anything for film blogs, which are becoming an important staple of film criticism, news and information. I also would like to see some kind of a customizable "search" bar so you can type in whatever you're looking for and find it easier, but I'm sure the site will be continually updated. I highly suggest you check out the website, and if you'd like to see some of the same things I would or have any other questions or comments, they're welcoming that at source (at) movingimage (dot) us.
