The concern of this article is to explore the ways Serbian national cinema and filmmakers portray Europe and specifically how Serbian film has engaged with the politics of Europeanization and the question of EU integration. With regard to film as well as culture generally, the politics of Europeanization in Serbia has involved highlighting the cultural closeness of Europe as well as the recognition of Serbian as European cultural identity. In this article I focus on films made from the 1990s onwards, looking at the way filmmakers have often pre-empted political developments, which has seen a shift from a politics of nationalism to one of Europeanization.

More about this publication?
  • The journal aims to provide a platform for the study of new forms of cinematic practice and fresh approaches to cinemas hitherto neglected in western scholarship. It particularly welcomes scholarship that does not take existing paradigms and theoretical conceptualisations as given; rather, it anticipates submissions that are refreshing in approach and exhibit a willingness to tackle cinematic practices that are still in the process of development into something new.
