Aims and scope
The main purposes of this journal are:

(1) to stimulate ongoing research on individual short films as a basis for a better understanding of the art form as a whole;

(2) to provide a flow of cutting-edge teaching materials that can be used in courses in which short films are either studied or produced, at film schools or universities; and

(3) to offer fresh inspiration to film-makers and other professionals working with short films in connection with festivals, national film institutes, regional film centres, etc.

While the principal focus will be on the short fiction film, other classic forms – such as the short documentary and the short experimental film – will also be covered from time to time, and attention will occasionally be given to commercials or public service announcements (PSAs) that are particularly worthy of serious research.

Two issues will be published every year: in each issue, two productions will be singled out for comprehensive presentation and close study. For each film, the reader will generally find relevant production data, an interview with the director, a shot-by-shot breakdown of the film with a still illustrating every shot, a number of peer-reviewed articles that illuminate the film from a variety of perspectives, and a link enabling subscribers to view the film.

 

All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
