Framing Film Festivals

About the series

The new Framing Film Festivals series aims to present the best of contemporary film festival research. The series will be
committed to furthering the understanding of the phenomenon of film festivals in all its complexity and thus brings
together a broad scope of themes and interdisciplinary methods. The international film festival circuit is made up of
a diverse range of bigger and smaller, general and specialized festival events. Next to the international festivals that
feature markets, funds and training opportunities, stand identity-based festivals that build on the local community’s
sense of belonging, and specialized festivals, dedicated to a genre or regional production. The publications in the series
will highlight the various faces of festivals and/or set the agenda concerning topical debates.

Themes and topics of interest to the series include but are not limited to festivals’ interrelations with national and global
film industries, the constitution of festival audiences, the festival as a particular exhibition context and the politics of
certain festival publics (e.g. LGBT festivals and women’s festivals), festivals’ specific relation to host cities, national/
local/regional culture vis-à-vis the global festival format and cosmopolitan in-crowd culture, and issues of censorship.

The series strives to present work that offers empirical study as well as conceptual perspectives on the ways festivals
relate to their stakeholders. The editors will also solicit projects that assess film festivals’ influence on typical festival
“genres,” like world cinema and global art cinema. Finally, this book series hopes to chart the new theoretical directions
in film festival studies.
