Summary/Abstract: The first issue of Cine-Journal (1908–1937) was published on 2/15 August 1908 in Paris to soon evolve into the most authoritative specialized periodical of its day. Now it is an invaluable source of information for the researchers in the filed of the earliest history of film and already available too, following the digitisation of some of its issues from No. 1 (15 August 1908) to No. 218 (26 October 1912). Enormous totally unknown until now information proved to be found there about the cinematic activities in Bulgaria during the said period; about filming chronicles and documentaries by foreign companies in this country, about their distribution not in France alone, but also in Western Europe; about the endeavours (including international) of Sofia-based Modern Theatre company; about the export and screening of the earliest Bulgarian movies abroad... It is part of this credible and professional information that is publicised for the first time in this article.
