Dear Colleagues,

Please see the following Call for Papers for an upcoming issue of *Short
Film Studies.*

Thank you.



Call for Papers, Issue 12.1

*Short Film Studies *is a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year. In
the context of the importance and increasing visibility of short films in
our current media environment, the journal aims to offer timely reflections
on and a centering of the form. Toward that end, the journal publishes
research based and analytical work that enables a broad appreciation of
short films and media and especially welcome*s contributions that consider
short films and media and/or selected titles as shorts specifically*.
Essays may focus on narrative—fiction and nonfiction—as well as live-action
and/or animated titles. Papers that address thematic issues and/or close
readings of single titles are welcome. A focus on shorts with running times
of 40-minutes or less is preferred. A range of possible topics appears

For Issue 12.1 essays are invited that focus on the auteur Agnès Varda’s

Côte* (1958),

(among several others). Also, for this issue, one title has been chosen for
close study, *No Bikini *(2007), the award-winning short directed by
Claudia Morgado E.; a link to the film is available @ In addition, *Short Film Studies *observes an
