Selections from FILM CULTURE Magazine, 1955-1996

Selections from FILM CULTURE Magazine, 1955-1996 at UBUWEB. "...Founded in 1954 by Jonas and Adolfas Mekas, the New York-based magazine FILM CULTURE began by covering Hollywood cinema and evolved into the primary voice of independent and avant-garde cinema with a total of 79 issues spanning the years 1955-1996. With regular contributions from critics and filmmakers like P. Adams Sitney, Stan Brakhage, Andrew Sarris, Parker Tyler and Jerome Hill (some of whom would go on to found Anthology Film Archives, which opened in 1970), FILM CULTULRE served as a forum for the New American Cinema, discussing the works of pioneering filmmakers like Maya Deren, Ron Rice and Paul Sharits, and providing important context for largely unseen films through its essays on film history, contemporary art and poetry."
