CFP Issue #76 CineAction

CineAction is an international film journal published three times a  
year from Toronto, Canada. Each issue is edited by a member of the  
editorial collective, and is usually themed. Issue #77, due to be  
published in May 2009, has two. It will look at the current phenomenon  
whereby genres once deemed marginal have come to play an increasingly  
dominant role in the popular movie industry.

AVENGERS ON FILM: Comic Book Heroes and Villains  This theme looks at  
the rapidly escalating popularity and presence  of films based on  
comic book superheroes. Investigations of form and analyses of content  
are both welcome.
THE DOCUMENTARY  As a counterpoint to the first theme, the issue will  
also look at the escalating popularity of what could be seen as its  
antithesis, the documentary film.

This issue will be edited by Susan Morrison. It would be appreciated  
if a brief proposal be submitted as early as possible as an indication  
of intention to submit. Please address all queries and submissions to  
the issue’s editor: [log in to unmask]
Submission in hard copy should be mailed to the editor at 314 Spadina  
Road  Toronto On Canada M5R 2V6
