Quick Takes

New owner for film journal

February 10, 2009|Reuters

The bible of France's art-house film world, Cahiers du Cinema, which launched "New Wave" directors such as Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard, has been bought by Phaidon Press, the art book publisher said on Monday.

Phaidon spokeswoman Liz Thompson said an English version of the magazine was planned in the coming year.

The film monthly, founded in 1951 by the critic and theorist Andre Bazin, was famous for promoting the "auteur" theory of filmmaking, which argued that a film should be the product of a director's personal vision.
