French film theorist, critic and filmmaker, co-founder of France's first film society and later of the Cinémathèque Française in 1938. Mitry was one of few major film theorists who actually worked with film production. He was editor of Alexandre Astruc's short film Le Rideau Cramoisi (1953) and director of two films of his own, Pacific 231 (1949) set to Arthur Honegger's music and Images pour Debussy (1952) set to the music of Claude Debussy. He died on 18 January 1988 at La Garenne-Colombes.
