Film International is devoted to bringing the reader all the latest news and developments in the world of international cinema. Film International covers film culture as part of the broader culture, history and economy of society. We address topics of contemporary relevance from historically informed perspectives. We wish to bridge the gap between the academy and the outside world, and encourage the participation of scholars from a variety of disciplines.
We refuse the facile dichotomies of 'high' and 'low', Hollywood and independent, art and commercial cinema. We discuss Hollywood films seriously, and 'art' movies critically. We aim at becoming a truly international publication recognising local specificities, but also the ultimate interconnectedness of an increasingly globalised world.
