- Published twice a year, Notebook magazine provides a curated vision of what makes the art of the cinema exciting and moving. Created, prepared, and published by MUBI, the global distributor and curated film streaming service, it is an editorially independent extension of MUBI’s mission of expanding access to and advocating for the seventh art. With a design-forward approach, featuring renowned international writers and collaborating with filmmakers and artists, the magazine is a showcase for experimental, reflective, and surprising approaches to film culture, engaging with it creatively and through diverse viewpoints and methods. In a cultural landscape of fewer and fewer magazines devoted to film, Notebook boldly encapsulates and embodies the tremendous vitality, relevance, and beauty of the cinema.
Brace for the approach of Issue 3 of Notebook magazine, in which saboteurs are afoot and unpredictable weather is in the forecast! With thematic pieces devoted to the appearance of weather inside and outside of movies—w(h)e(a)ther cataclysmic or beautiful, documented or created—and to the disruptive ways film culture and industry can be sabotaged, this Issue is expected to reach record readings (!). Features encompass an exploration of filming in extreme cold in the silent era and today; a tour of an artificial weather effects facility; filmmaker weather diaries; Batgirl and the self-sabotage of Warner Bros. Discovery; a radical manifesto from the unseen film festival workers; a critic’s self-debate over Godard’s Contempt; and advice on how to render a movie unstreamable. Other highlights include 16mm film restoration, behind the scenes of 1930s Indian moviemaking and a new, multi-issue series on the “Things a Filmmaker Should Know” inaugurated by Tsai Ming-liang (Days, Goodbye, Dragon Inn).
