For the November/December issue, Nick Pinkerton wrote a feature article about the golden age of film societies, which gave students and other members of the film community access to a wide variety of international and art house films that were otherwise unavailable to them. Here, we present a few items from the organizations mentioned in his feature—posters, photographs, zines, and more. Do you have some (scanned) memories you’d like to share? Send them to us at editor@filmlinc.org.
