On 1 September at Venice Days, presentation of the Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies.
 
Flavia Laviosa, founder and director of the journal, and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Italian Studies and in the Cinema and Media Studies Program at Wellesley College, USA, will present of Monday 1 September at 15.30, at Villa degli Autori, the Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies, published by Intellect (UK) and in particular two themed issues, on the intersections between Italian and Chinese cinemas, published in 2014.
 
Will also be present: Giuliano Montaldo, Maurizio Sciarra and Silvia Scola.
Moderator: Antonio Falduto
 
The objective: to present the aims and scopes of the Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies, an academic publication which intends to broaden the critical horizons of Italian cinema with a translational and transnational perspective. The two special issues on the aesthetic dialogue between Italy and China comprise articles on the historical and artistic exchanges between the two cinematic worlds. These contributions and others published in the journal explore Italian cinema as a geo-cultural bridge and a spatio-temporal springboard for multiple and complex destinations that interconnect Italian cinema with other world cinemas.
 
Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies, with an editorial board of renowned scholars from the best universities in the world, publishes articles, interviews, book and film reviews, biographies of independent filmmakers, conferences and film festivals reports. The power point presentation will illustrate the journal’s themes, theoretical framework and new critical directions.
 
The event is sponsored by Wellesley College.
