This is a renewed' call for papers' for issue #64 of CineAction, an
international film journal published 3 times a year in Toronto,
Canada. The deadline for this issue has been extended to June 15,
2004. The theme for this issue is 'New Directions?', the central
question being whether there are any identifiable trends and
directions in the first place. 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? 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 June 15, 2004. It would be appreciated
if a brief proposal be submitted as early as possible 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:
