Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness, installation view, MCAD Manila, 2017


This special issue intends to be a forum for the discussion of new practices of researching film. The past two decades saw a change in Cinema’s forms of experience and production, which require a search for new vocabularies to access what is at stake in this “new cinema” as well as new methodologies for its study.

The special issue arises from the need to think about how film culture has evolved in the past decades, how its aesthetical experience has changed, and how we can characterize it in the present. Given this scope, the call-for-papers focuses on three large-scale areas:

1. The relation between Cinema and the Arts
2. The new paths of contemporary cinema
3. The cinema-essay


Editors: Nuno Crespo and Daniel Ribas
Associated editor: Carlos Sena Caires


Deadline for submissions: June 15, 2019.
