Positif is a French film magazine, founded in 1952 by Bernard Chardere. It is the second oldest French-language film magazine in publication after Les Cahiers du cinéma.[1] The magazine is headquartered in Paris and is published monthly.[2]

Positif often acts as a counterpoint to Cahiers du cinéma,[3] another well-known French film journal, notably with Gerard Gozlan's article sarcastically titled "In Praise of André Bazin."[4]Positif has a Marxist-Leninist approach towards films.[3]

The magazine was edited by Eric Losfeld from 1959.[5][6] The current chief editor is Michel Ciment.[7] The contributors included Ado Kyrou.
