Frédéric Maire makes his first appearance on FRED Film Radio. No time would be more appropriate for a first-time appearance, as the director of the Cinémateque Suisse has also recently been appointed as the new president of FIAF (the International Federation of Film Archives). Naturally, the interview is structurally divided into two parts; in the first, Maire talks about his Swiss Cinematheque – one of the most respected film archives in the world – and in the second, we discuss FIAF and some of the most pressing issues that were discussed at the 2017 FIAF Congress. In between, Maire also takes the time to talk to us about a number of topics; these include La Roue (1923) by Abel Gance, his interesting film education project, and a comment on this year’s program of Il Cinema Ritrovato.
