Dear festival researchers:

A new update to the FFRN Bibliography is available on the website:
www.filmfestivalresearch.org/ <http://www.filmfestivalresearch.org/>  

In this most recent update to the open-access online bibliography of the
Film Festival Research Network (FFRN) nearly a hundred new entries and
references have been added since last year's big overhaul.  This clearly
speaks to the continued productivity of the field of film festival studies.

Furthermore, the field is active on a global scale with a number of special
issues and dossiers on film festival topics having come out in 2014/2015 in
the Czech Republic (Iluminace 26:1 [2014], ed. by Jindřiška Bláhová), the UK
(Scope 26 [2014], ed. by Ger Zielinski), Italy (Cinergie 6 [2014], ed. by
Monia Acciari and Roy Menarini), Spain (Secuencias: Revista de Historia del
Cine 39 [2014], ed. by Aida Vallejo) and Quebec (Synoptique 3:2 [2015], ed.
by Papagena Robbins and Viviane Saglier).

Along with the focussed special issues, a number of peer-review journals
seem to become stable outlets for film festival studies research, among them
are Screen, Transnational Cinemas and Studies in Australasian Cinema, which
have in recent issues featured a number of festival related articles.

This year, the first monograph in the new Framing Film Festival series,
edited by Marijke de Valck and Tamara Falicov for Palgrave Macmillan was
published: Lindiwe Dovey's book Curating Africa in the Age of Film
Festivals: Film Festivals, Time, Resistance (2015) started off the series.

The bibliography also increasingly reflects the international/transnational
nature of the field by surveying not only English-language research.  In the
current edition, German, French, Spanish and Italian entries are also
listed.  Here, we would like to thank Aida Vallejo, Minerva Campos and
Enrico Vannucci for keeping us up to date with recent publications in
Italian and Spanish.

As the field and the bibliography are growing, the help of researchers in
the field is essential.  Please let us know about new publications!

We wish you productive browsing on the site.  With increasing breadth and
depth of the bilbiography the navigation is getting more complex, but the
whole site is searchable for keyworkds and names through the search bar on
the top right.  Feel free to send us comments and suggestions to improve the
site.  Until then, enjoy the reading!


Best wishes
