Fellini: A Director's Notebook (Italian: Bloc-notes di un regista) is an Italian documentary directed by Federico Fellini shot in 16mm and first broadcast in the United States on NBC in 1969.


Commissioned by NBC television producer Peter Goldfarb in 1968 to do an hour-long program on his work, Fellini filmed a "sort of semihumourous introduction"[2] to past and future plans: the recently abandoned project, The Voyage of G. Mastorna, and his latest work-in-progress, Fellini Satyricon.[3]
