Call for Papers *Short Film Studies* Journal, Issue 12.2:
*Short Film Studies* is a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year. The
journal publishes research based and analytical work that enables a broad
appreciation of short films and media, and especially welcomes
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 also are
welcome. A focus on shorts with running times of 40-minutes or less is
preferred. A range of possible topics appears below.
For Issue 12.2 essays are invited that focus on the auteur Janicza Bravo,

Alone* (2014), *Man Rots from the Head* (2016), and *Hard World for Small
Things* (2016).

*Emtehan*)  (2019), the award-winning Iranian short directed and co-written
by Sonia K. Hadad. A link to the film is available @ An interview with the director and a
shot-by-shot breakdown of the *Exam* will be available on the journal’s
