MGIP Newsletter October 2018

For the fourth time, the MGIP Frankfurt dinner was held at the Restaurant Margarete, situated in the ‘House of Books’ and the FBF headquarters. The wonderful autumn weather allowed us, for the very first time, to enjoy our drinks on the outside terrace. This year we welcomed about 100 MGIP members and guests for drinks, food and lively discussions. During the dinner we also announced the location of our next summer meeting (see below in the newsletter for the big reveal) and handed-out the diplomas to the winners of the MGIP Book Award.

Please see below a few photos from the weekend. More photos at

Books on Film- Award at The ARTS+


During the MGIP Book Awards, all members were asked to vote for the best Best Illustrated Book on Film – an award organised for the first time in cooperation with Frankfurt Book Fair. 

The winning book was announced by Jean Arcache at The ARTS+ stage:

Cinemaps: An Atlas of 35 Great Movies (Quirk Books)

There were also two runners-up: 
Marilyn Monroe 50 sessions (Knesebeck Verlag)

The short ceremony was a great success, with many more people in attendance than was expected by the organisers!
