Moving Image Source

Moving Image Sourcer Moving Image Source is a new website of interest launched by the Museum of the Moving Image, which is located in New York’s  Astoria Studio across the East River from Manhattan. It features a blog-like magazine devoted to film history and a very useful portal with extensive links to all sorts of sites related to “film, television, and digital media.” For instance, there is a a calendar of events listing retrospectives showing at film archives around the world as well as a research guide that providing links to all sorts of material, from magazines and online databases to films online and bibliographies.

I’ve always had a soft spot for the Museum, which is often overshadowed by the Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center; after all, they not only funded an oral history which led to my work on the history of animation unions, but later invited me to give a lecture on the topic several years later.
