CFP: CineAction Issue #93  The City and Film

Film and urban theorists have noted the relationship between the  
development of the modern metropolis and the rise of the cinema, which  
remains a central component of modern urban culture.  This issue will  
explore the continuing connection between the two and how it’s  
expressed and continues to be relevant.  The cinema has shaped ideas  
about reality and in turn, has influenced how certain cities are  
perceived producing a dynamic relationship between the real, social  
world and culture.

Submissions can include the reading of a film dealing with a specific  
city such as New York or Paris or the city and genre films, the city  
as utopia or the city as nightmare.  The films can be from the  
mainstream, independent or documentary film.
