Press Release

Continental Film Philosophy Today
New Special Issue of Film-Philosophy

The latest issue of the salon-journal Film-Philosophy (ISSN  
1466-4615) takes a snapshot of the new lines of thinking in  
continental film philosophy. Taking on the new interest with the  
bodily in relation to the image, the return of deconstruction in film  
studies, and featuring a symposium on Dominique Chateau’s Cinéma et  
philosophie (2005), the issue examines the possible futures of  
philosophy and film. (This includes the appearance of philosophers on  
film, with a review by Edward R. O’Neill of the recent films Derrida  
and Zizek!). Edited by four of the ten-member editorial collective  
(Sarah Cooper, David Martin-Jones, Douglas Morrey, and Benjamin  
Noys), this issue of Film-Philosophy continues our desire for  
accessible academic engagement.

Film-Philosophy is designed as a 21st century international para- 
academic 24-hour live-event version of specialised academic  
publishing. Traditional journals (including those online that desire  
the gravitas of tradition, and don't exploit their electronic  
position) allow little or no possibility for interaction, response,  
or argument. Articles are read, but hang in the air with a somewhat  
delayed life – before being cited perhaps months or years later. Film- 
Philosophy is a 'salon-journal', with 1500 worldwide members who can  
discuss and continue the journal review-articles. We also have a  
tradition of inviting reviewed authors the right to reply as another  
way of short circuiting this delay.

So we encourage any and all readers to use the salon to reply and  
engage creatively with these new lines in continental film philosophy.

Benjamin Noys (University of Chichester), David Sorfa (Liverpool John

PS. Film-Philosophy is 10 years old today (1 November 2006), so Happy  
Birthday to us.
