Abstract:The purpose of the journal is to foster and publish high quality research into a range of areas. These include: film as text and representation, film history (in the widest sense of technological innovation in relation to film style, institutional change and unexplored cinemas), film genre, modes of production and reception (audience studies in relation to the wider social context in which Hispanic Cinemas are consumed), star and performance studies, film theory, alternative/avant garde forms as well as regional and local film practices. We are also keen to encourage work in areas we feel are somewhat underrepresented in the field such as early film history (1896–1920s), documentary, cinema and urban studies as well as the relations between film and television, new forms of spectatorship and developing media technologies.
