Film and TV Studies Discussion List <[log in to unmask]>

The issue's guiding premise is to give writers the opportunity of drawing
readers' attention to films of value which have had little circulation and
might therefore have been overlooked, especially films that either went
direct to video or DVD, or received only a very brief or limited release.
They can be films made anywhere in the world, by world-renowned directors
such as Kiarostami and Hou Hsiao-hsien, to barely known American
independents or even mainstream Hollywood if the work was scarcely
released.  Obviously, however, the film discussed must be available for
rent or purchase - the idea is to encourage readers to explore areas they
might not have ventured into or even know about, thereby enabling writers
to share the excitement of discovery.  If the film is available only from
some specialized venue (for example, two of Hou's films are currently
available only from mail order from Cheng and Tsui in Boston), please
specify, to spare readers the frustration of searching fruitlessly through
stores.  You should also specify whether the film is available on video,
DVD, or both, and whether it is in the correct format.  Articles can be
short or up to 5000 words; you might even wish to write briefly on several
deserving films.

Deadline: November 15, 2000.
