ABSTRACT
The article discusses the close relationship that existed between cinema and the avant-garde and vice-versa. Avant-garde artists, such as painters, made films or wrote about cinema, while a large number of vanguard directors and film critics were previously well known authors. Most of the avant-garde artists in pre-war Europe, regularly went to the cinema to watch movies.
