_New issue: The International Journal of Film and Media Arts. *Vol. 1 No. 2 – Stereoscopic and Immersive Media*_

The International Journal of Film and Media Arts Volume: 1, Number: 2 (2016) <> is now available online.


The second number of the International Journal of Film and Media Arts is dedicated to stereoscopic and immersive media. This issue has contributions from researchers, scholars and archivists working on visual media renowned for their stereoscopic and immersive features. The papers in this issue keenly reflect a diversity of approaches that contribute to a critical understanding of stereo and immersive media today in the broad context of haptic and visual media cultures, with topics ranging from immersive pre-cinematic media, and scientific stereoscopic practices, to spatial and cultural aspects of virtual travel.

The call for full papers and book reviews for vol. 2, no. 1 (to be published June 2017) on spatial storytelling is open. Visit: <>

Today, interactive user-oriented narrative is overtaking story structures traditionally linked to linear time based narrative. Unlike time-based media, which are often single-authored, and presented to its audience, digital space based narrative evolves through user motivated use of the media affordances in different contexts. The user, unlike the audience, co-creates the story while playing it, but also helps in reshaping the media.

For its third issue, the International Journal of Film and Media Arts welcomes contributions in the form of full articles that deal with the theoretical and empirical implications of spatial storytelling for both film and other media. We would particularly like to receive contributions that would focus on:

- The role of spatial based narrative in the transformation of film form;

- Case studies on the application of spatial narrative in different media namely those that cross film and videogames;

-          Spatial narrative structures and models;

-          Mix media used of spatial narrative.
