Second Life (2). Filmliga online

From 1927 till 1931, the journal Filmliga appeared with publisher and printer Clausen in Amsterdam. This journal, organ of the homonymous, Film Society-like association, discussed the international avant-garde in cinema, according to the association’s own aesthetical points-of-view. It published texts by its organisers such as Menno ter Braak and by avant-gardists from all over Europe, such as Germaine Dulac and Hans Richter. The book that Jan Heijs published on Filmliga in 1982 is now online available via the Digitale Bibliotheek voor de Nederlandse Letteren. Next to an introduction by Heijs, the book contains a photographic reproduction of all issues of Filmliga till 1931, the year the Amsterdam committee of the Filmliga association dissolved itself [but the journal still continued elsewhere].
