After being edited for 25 years by Richard Koszarski, Professor of English at Rutgers University, the editorial office of Film History is moving to Indiana University. Beginning with volume 25, number 1 (the spring 2013 issue), the journal will be edited by Gregory A. Waller, Professor of Film Studies in the IU Department of Communication and Culture. Published by Indiana University Press in cooperation with this department and the IU College of Arts and Sciences, the re-designed journal plans special issues on film distribution; digital resources and historical research; fan magazines; actors, acting, and performance; and film history and sound studies.
In addition to submissions related to these topics, the editorial team encourages queries and submissions across the full spectrum of international film history, from pre-cinema into the 21st century, in and out of the commercial, theatrical mainstream and welcomes proposals for review essays and reassessments of classic texts in film history.
