Film International Vol 16, Number 2


Summer 2018

- +

Film International covers film culture as part of the broader culture, history and economy of society. It addresses topics of contemporary relevance from historically informed perspectives. Bridging the gap between the academy and the outside world, it encourages the participation of scholars from a variety of disciplines, as well as journalists, freelance writers, activists and film-makers.

Refusing the facile dichotomies of ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture, Hollywood and independent, art and commercial cinema, it discusses Hollywood films seriously, and ‘art’ movies critically. Film International is a truly international journal, recognising local specificities, but also the ultimate interconnectedness of an increasingly globalised world.
