Domitor is the ”  international association for the development of early cinema research  ” and brings together international researchers specialized in the study of cinema from the beginnings until 1915 .

Founded in October 1985 at the Silent Film Festival in Pordenone , Italy, the Domitor Association institutionalized the growing interest of researchers for this corpus following the Brighton Congress in 1978. The five founders are Stephen Bottomore (UK ), Paolo Cherchi Usai (Italy), André Gaudreault (Quebec), Tom Gunning (United States) and Emmanuelle Toulet (France).
