Revised Call for Papers

“Film Festival Origins and Trajectories”
Special issue of the peer-reviewed journal New Review of Film and Television Studies
Guest-edited by Lydia Papadimitriou and Jeffrey Ruoff
March 30, 2015 deadline for submission of completed 6,000-,9000 word essays

This special issue of NRFTS explores the genesis of festivals, in different countries, to trace the distances festivals have travelled from their origins, how changes are sometimes intentional and at other times the results of socio-political and economic transformations.  Case studies of individual festivals are welcome.  The guest editors are interested in essays that break new historical, methodological, and theoretical grounds and dialogue with the literature of film festival studies.

Style guidelines of the journal are available at http://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=rfts20&page=instructions#.VLfNiVqjTAM.

If you intend to submit, email an abstract of 100-200 words and a 50-word bio to L.Papadimitriou at ljmu.ac.uk<mailto:L.Papadimitriou at ljmu.ac.uk> and Jeffrey.k.ruoff at dartmouth.edu<mailto:Jeffrey.k.ruoff at dartmouth.edu> by Jan. 23.

Please forward to others who may be interested in contributing.

Best wishes,

Jeffrey Ruoff and Lydia Papadimitriou
