CFP: CineAction Issue #93 The City and Film
Film and urban theorists have noted the relationship between the
development of the modern metropolis and the rise of the cinema, which
remains a central component of modern urban culture. This issue will
explore the continuing connection between the two and how it’s
expressed and continues to be relevant. The cinema has shaped ideas
about reality and in turn, has influenced how certain cities are
perceived producing a dynamic relationship between the real, social
world and culture.
Submissions can include the reading of a film dealing with a specific
city such as New York or Paris or the city and genre films, the city
as utopia or the city as nightmare. The films can be from the
mainstream, independent or documentary film.
We welcome reviews of films released in 2013 that you consider worthy
of serious consideration.
Submission deadline February 15, 2014
