- 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.
- Issue 1 of Notebook is out in June 2022 and will be available only via direct subscriptions and in select stores around the world. It includes contributions by filmmakers, artists, writers, and curators covering an array of cinematic subjects, including a showcase of newly opened cinemas, galleries, and museums, an extended conversation between Academy Award-winning director Ryusuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car) and artist Yoshitomo Nara, and a special international dispatch from eight filmmakers who have been recently displaced from Afghanistan. The issue also features visual essays by Mexican-Ethiopian filmmaker Jessica Beshir (the Oscar-shortlisted Faya Dayi) and award-winning cinematographer Christopher Doyle (In the Mood For Love); artwork from artist filmmaker Nazlı Dinçel; original text contributions from authors including Carlos Valladares, Benedict Salazar Olgado, and Phuong Le; plus a stunning photographic collaboration with the Centre Pompidou; among various other contributions.
