This Bazin seminar wasn't even mentioned in the monthly calender of the paper November issue of Cahiers!

A note is posted in their website, for the November seminar but nothing for the other dates of this "Bazin year" event.

Jean-Michel Frodon talks about the Yale side of this seminar, on the website, because he's invited there.

Emmanuel Burdeau announces in the current issue that the regular section in Cahiers since January 2008, called "Bazin jour après jour", publishing unpublished texts by Bazin, will be terminated with the December issue... I suspect the new owner Phaidon, Book publisher, expects to bank on the promised publication of an hypotethical Complete Bazin, therefore prevents any leaks from their future revenues... If only that could hasten the availability of Bazin's oeuvre. Hopefully published by the Brits, because France couldn't do it in 50 years.

Nothing published on the Cahiers website on November 11, 2008, to mark the 50th anniversary of André Bazin's death.

I don't know if the redaction of Cahiers is pissed off that they were not invited/consulted to participate to this Bazin seminar (except for Frodon at Yale), or if they just forgot about it because they don't care... in any case it's shameful for the guys who claim exclusivity over the Cahiers historical legacy.

No mention either in their newsletter of November 208 [sic], which I just received today.

It's pretty sad state of affairs to hear that the magazine which Bazin so fondly mentored and instituted did not have any form of honor on his death anniversary let alone a mention even though it happened to be the 50th death anniversary of Bazin.
