Aims & Scope

Journal of Italian Cinema & Media Studies is a fully peer-reviewed, English-language journal, which explores Italian cinema and media as sites of crossing, allowing critical discussion of the work of filmmakers, artists in the film industry and media professionals. The journal intends to revive a critical discussion on the auteurs, celebrate new directors and accented cinema and examine Italy as a geo-cultural locus for contemporary debate on translocal cinema.
