Call For Papers: Directory of World Cinema: France

Editors: Tim Palmer (University of North Carolina Wilmington) and Charlie Michael (University of Wisconsin-Madison)


From the beginnings of cinema to the present day, France is perennially at the center of world film culture. Traditionally, though, the history of French cinema has been told in terms of great directors and select artistic movements. This new edited volume presents an alternative to this standard story – by unearthing lost or neglected films, broadening the canon, and offering original approaches to
acknowledged classics.


For this project, the editors seek 1000-word submissions on notable French films. All selections are welcome, but the editors are particularly interested in texts that relate to the following categories: animation; women’s cinema; avant-gardes and counter cinemas; new waves and young cinemas; Francophone and immigrant filmmaking; documentary and realism; blockbusters and superproductions;
the crime film/policier; comedies; classics revisited.


Please email all submissions (including a very brief plot synopsis separate from the body of the text) to:
