'A new scholarly journal with a novel angle on cinema.' – The Chronicle of Higher Education

Film Matters is an exciting new film magazine, celebrating the work of undergraduate film scholars. It is published four times a year, by students and for students, and each issue contains feature articles, as well as a healthy reviews section. In addition, with an undergraduate audience in mind, Film Matters will include occasional service-oriented pieces, such as profiles of film studies departments, articles that engage the undergraduate film studies community and prepare students for graduate study in this field, and resources and opportunities that undergraduate scholars can pursue. In an effort to give undergraduate scholars real-world, applied learning experiences, all Film Matters feature submissions will undergo a peer review process.

'I'm excited and grateful to be published in Film Matters. […] I think the idea and mission behind Film Matters is great, and I am honored to be included in it.'
