Launched in January 2020, a regular newsletter/online publication I've started called Rep Cinema International, focusing on repertory and archival film programming around the world. It's a mix of repertory programming highlights, news, interviews with programmers, archivists and others who are invested in getting older films to screens both locally and internationally. It's a vibrant new publication and I hope you'll subscribe.
