= Interesting magazine, edited by i.a. M. ter Braak, J. Ivens, H. Scholte and C. van Wessem. Nice (photomontage) wrapper designs by i.a. P. Schuitema (all 12 issues of year 4) and S. van Ravesteyn (year 1, no.11). Maan, Paul Schuitema visual organiser: "The Rotterdam Filmliga occupied an important place in the cultural life of the city around 1930. The Dutch Film Liga had been set up in 1927 as a result of the ban on showing the Russian film The Mother by the Russian avant-garde filmmaker Pudovkin in public. The Dutch filmmaker Joris Ivens therefore ran the film at three private showings in Amsterdam. A month later, the Amsterdam Filmliga was an accomplished fact." The magazine was not published between May 1930 and September 1931 (thus 'skipping' a year 4). Number 9/10 of year 3, issued in Sept./ Oct. 1931, contains only records of the internal struggles in the Rotterdam department of the Filmliga. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE XXXI.
