Dear colleagues,

The NECSUS peer review journal, that is affiliated with NECS - the European Network for Cinema and Media Studies - features a festival review section. For this section we regularly seek contributions from scholars or professionals.

The NECSUS film festival review section publishes critical writing on film festivals. It offers a platform for writing that falls between the fast and prolific genre of individual festival reports and the slow and rigorous labor of film festival research. Rather than merely reviewing the latest festival edition, contributors are asked to take a critical distance and reflect upon one or more thematic issues that are relevant to the professional field and/or for media studies. Reviews can be motivated by current affairs but should also tackle issues that tend to remain hidden in the midst of festival buzz. Contributors should not be employed by the festival they are reviewing.

Reviews may focus on one or up to 3 film festivals, and have a maximum of 2,500 words. The section also features alternatively shaped reviews in the form of interviews or dossiers. You can have a look at previously published reviews here: http://www.necsus-ejms.org/category/reviews/festivalreviews/

If you are interested in contributing, please get in touch with Skadi (skadi.loist at uni-rostock.de<mailto:skadi.loist at uni-rostock.de>) or myself (m.devalck at uu.nl).

Best wishes,
