The UC Berkeley Center for Chinese Studies hosts a conference on a new print materials collection acquired by the C.V. Starr East Asian Library. 

This meeting honors the Paul Kendel Fonoroff Collection, a unique and invaluable archive of print materials and ephemera documenting nearly a century of Chinese cinema and media culture, and recently acquired by the C. V. Starr East Asian Library at the University of California, Berkeley. The conference will span two and half days of scholarly talks and workshops, in conjunction with a museum exhibition in the grand atrium of the Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA) of rare Chinese film posters. There will also be a series of public screenings of early Chinese cinema at BAMPFA.
