This is a ' call for papers' for issue #64 of CineAction, an
international film journal published 3 times a year in Toronto,
Canada. The theme of this issue is 'New Directions?' the intent being
to open up for discussion questions of trends and directions in
contemporary international cinema. Are we, at the beginning of the
twenty-first century, witnessing any sort of transformation in
filmmaking, production, distribution, reception? Have the parameters
changed because of a recent move towards transnationalism or
multi-nationalism in film production? Has American cinema 'won'? Is
there still the possibility (or desirability) of a distinctly
national cinema? At the same time, individual films and/or filmmakers
may also be investigated for ways in which they challenge the
conventions of the medium.
Papers should be submitted in hard copy only, mailed directly to
Susan Morrison, the editor of this issue. Once accepted for
publication, the paper will then be emailed as a file attachment.
The deadline for submission is May 15, 2004. It would be appreciated
if a brief proposal be submitted by Jan. 30 as an indication of
intention to submit.
A style guide will be emailed on request.
Please address all queries and submissions to the issue's editor:
