Dear colleagues,
It was a pleasure to meet many of you at the NECS conference in Paris last week. Panels devoted to film festival studies were really interesting and the meeting really productive!
I just wanted to let you know that some journals are seeking for reviewers for the book Film Festivals and Anthropology: http://www.cambridgescholars.com/film-festivals-and-anthropology, edited by Aida Vallejo and María Paz Peirano. Don't forget that you are entitled to a discount if you use the word festivals20 when purchasing online.

You can have a look at the two journals' call for reviewers and if you are interested, request a copy of the book to make the review:
1) Journal Social Anthropology : https://socantfax.wordpress.com/
2) Journal Visual Studies:
If you or qualified colleagues wish to receive one (or more) of these books for purposes of writing a review, please contact me, Gary Bratchford (Gbratchford at uclan.ac.uk) and provide the following information:

- name and affiliation;
- your best book-mailing address;
- the book(s) you wish to review;
- 2-3 sentences describing your qualifications and/or reasons for wanting to review the selected title (e.g. your previous scholarship, current interests, publications and the like). PLEASE DO NOT OVERLOOK THIS POINT.

Individual book review lengths (500-750 words / 1000-1250 words) will be assigned when a reviewer is accepted for an assignment. Reviews will be due in for early September.

Please note: Potential reviewers should not be disappointed if their first choice is unavailable. Generally requests to review a book outnumber available books, and requests are not evenly distributed across the entire list. If you do not hear from me, please wait until the next round of books becomes available.

With kind regards,
Book Review Editor, Visual Studies
