Much more than movie theatres
Discover the Collection of DVDs and books published by the Royal Belgian Film Archive, CINEMATEK, available for sale online

Chantal Akerman Collection
CINEMATEK not only conserves all the films of this masterful director, but also manages her entire archive.
In the Wunderkammer, the history of film is brought to life through various interactive showcases, starting from the Chinese shadow play to the cinematograph of the Lumière brothers.
“Jacques Ledoux has been memorialized in a lovely multilingual book that gathers reminiscences by Ledoux’s colleagues. There are memoirs by Noël Desmet, Clementine Deblieck, Jean-Paul Dorchain, Hilde Delabie, and Gabrielle Claes, Ledoux’s successor as director. Bernard Eisenschitz, Eric De Kuyper, and P. Adams Sitney offer illuminating appreciations of Ledoux’s contributions. (Sitney’s very full account of Knokke doings is a crucial document in the history of the American avant-garde.) Ledoux’s own voice is represented by a program note for a 1968 science-fiction series. There are many wonderful illustrations–photos, posters, correspondence (Cocteau, Lenica, Akerman).”
