Lim Looks Back For Latest Project

Dennis Lim and the Museum of the Moving Image, where the former Village Voice film editor recently signed on as "editorial director" and last month spearheaded the museum's film writing institute, just announced a new initiative emphasizing film history, criticism and a heavy emphasis on repertory happenings around the world. This fall the pair will launch Moving Image Source, a Web site featuring coverage, descriptions, research components and calendars for museum and art house retrospectives. In response to the question, "If Moving Image Source was a tree, what kind of tree would it be?" the museum press release appears to have replied, "A pine":

“I look forward to working on Moving Image Source,” Mr. Lim said. “This site grows out of a belief that the health of film culture depends on a serious engagement with film history. Thanks to restored prints, new DVDs, and the vitality of retrospective programming at film institutions around the world, important old movies are now more accessible than ever. At the same time, coverage of revivals and historical surveys continues to dwindle at traditional media outlets. This is an ideal time for a publication and resource of this nature, and the Internet, which has enabled the emergence of a global cinephile community, is the ideal forum for it.”

The rest of the release, with a more comprehensive description of the project and its upcoming launch, is available here. And as always, expect additional coverage on The Reeler as the site's launch approaches later this year.
