ilab-bologna-2010.jpg
In het Italiaanse Bologna wordt van 20-26 september 2010 het 39e ILAB Congres en de 23e International Antiquarian Book fair gehouden. Meer dan 100 delegaties uit de hele wereld komen op dit evenement tezamen voor overleg, handel en ontspanning. (lees meer)

Eén van de activiteiten die het organiserend comité bedacht ter promotie van het congres is het Rare Book Film Festival.

The prestigious Cineteca di Bologna, founded half a century ago, has enthusiastically embraced the idea of a Film Festival dedicated to Bibliophily, showing films related to books during the Congress week from September 20th to 26th. All the famous movies will star a librarian among the main characters. The Cineteca will also realize a medley of the most important scenes related to bibliophily, which will be screened at Palazzo Re Enzo.

Op de website is een lijst te vinden van films waarin antiquaren, oude boeken, bibliotheken, e.d. een grote (of kleinere) rol spelen.

Elias, a silent partner in stolen and forged books. Sydney, a master forger of rare books. Julia, Otto’s secretary who has expensive clothes and jewelry. Joel is the one who must find the murderer before he becomes the next victim.
