The Film Festival Reader
What is the importance of film festivals in the context of film culture at large? What logic reigns within the film festival galaxy? Are film festivals tools of power and prestige that make or break the fate of a film? What, if anything, is wrong with the concept of ‘festival films’? What makes a good film festival good or a bad one bad?


It is these and other questions that are raised and treated in the classic texts included in this collection. Festivals, for so long a key component of film culture, have been ignored in film studies scholarship. This is now rapidly changing. It is in this context that we offer a representative anthology that collects some of the important texts that have fostered the thinking on festivals so far.

Key texts by Mark Cousins; Daniel Dayan; Marijke de Valck; Thomas Elsaessser; Sean Farnel; Jean-Michel Frodon; Chris Fujiwara; Janet Harbord; Dina Iordanova; Bill Nichols; Abé Mark Nornes; Mark Peranson; Ragan Rhyne; B. Ruby Rich; Nick Roddick; Julian Stringer; Paul Willemen.
