New acquisitions Geoffrey Donaldson Institute

Last year, the Geoffrey Donaldson Instituut (GDI) in Noord-Scharwoude, the Netherlands, opened its doors. The GDI promotes research of film production, film screening and film culture in the Netherlands. At the moment, you can visit a small, delightful exhibition 'Bert Haanstra - schilder, tekenaar, fotograaf', about the Oscar winning Dutch director (on view till 16 October 2014). GDI also produced a beautiful new book on Haanstra, written by Hans Schoots. Chairman of the board of GDI is film historian Egbert Barten, whose postcard collection is permanently on view at EFSP. Today, a choice from his latest postcard acquisitions.
