Winner of the 2016 Film Matters Masoud Yazdani Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Film Scholarship announced

Each year, Film Matters honours Masoud Yasdani, founding chairman of Intellect and all-around visionary who is very much missed, by recognizing an emerging undergraduate film scholar who has published a feature article in Film Matters the previous volume year. The winning author, selected by three individual academics based at institutions of higher education worldwide, receives a book from the field of film studies, in recognition of his/her achievement. 


Intellect is delighted to announce the winner of the Film Matters second annual Masoud Yazdani Award, Nace Zavrl, for his FM 6.3 (2015) article, “Spectatorship and Synchronous Sound Before the Transition: A Contextual Analysis of Chronophone, Phonofilm, and Movietone Shorts.”

Nace will be receiving a cope of Miriam Hansen’s Babel and Babylon: Spectatorship on American Silent Film, published by Harvard University Press in 1994.


Upon the release of Film Matters 7.3 (2016), judging for the 2017 award will begin. All volume 7 (2016) feature article authors will automatically be considered for this distinction.
