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]
