The materials include information about the films that are seen as part of the French New Wave as well as writing on the directors who made the New Wave films. The French New Wave of cinema is normally defined in relation to a number of French based film critics in the 1950s who had strong criticisms of then lauded French films and screenwriters and instead upheld the idea of the brilliant auteur (their examples were from commercial American cinema). The critics started making films in the late 1950s and helped to introduce and popularise new ideas in filmmaking and in film criticism. The French New Wave is seen to have begun in the late 1950s with its peak years being 1959-1964. A number of film makers associated with the movement have made films up to the present day. The principal directors of the French New Wave movement are Jean-Luc Godard, Francois Truffaut, Eric Rohmer, Claude Chabrol, and Jacques Rivette. This movement has been seen by many as being a formative influence on film criticism. It can be argued that this influence has touched the AFI Research Collection as many materials on the French New Wave and its auteurs have been collected over the years.&rft.creator=Alex Gionfriddo&rft.date=2016&rft_rights=1.
