The HENRI STORCK Collection wins prize at IL CINEMA RITROVATO festival in Bologna (July 2013)

Il Cinema Ritrovato (Cinema Rediscovered) is a festival dedicated to the rediscovery of rare and little-known films with a particular focus on cinema origins and the silent movie period. It is organised every summer by the Cineteca di Bologna, Italy, and is one of the world's major festivals of film restoration. Every year, the festival organises a DVD Awards competition. This year's jury comprised of Lorenzo Codelli, Alexander Horwarth, Mark McElhatten, Paolo Mereghetti, and Jonathan Rosenbaum, and was presided by Peter von Bagh.

CINEMATEK and it's partners the Cinémathèque of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and the Henri Storck Fund received the prize for Best Blu-ray set of the year for the HENRI STORCK Collection: "a wide sélection raisonnée by a master of documentary in four DVDs covering four parallel sides of his researches: Images d'Ostende, elegies devoted to the beauties of Storck's hometown and beaches; his pamphlets against capitalism, Misère au Borinage; his Virgilian eclogue, Symphonies Paysanne; and his films devoted to Paul Delvaux, Rubens, and Herman Teirlinck-all superbly restored".

CINEMATEK pays tribute to Henri Storck with 4 titles on DVD + Blu-ray. Images d'Ostende contains 8 films on his native city of Ostend of which he was the official chronicler in the 30's. Misère au Borinage presents three 'social' films from the same era. The lyrical masterpiece Symphonie paysanne describes the day to day life and rituals of the farmers. Art & Cinema revives a number of Storck's documentaires on art.
