>New Cinemas is a refereed academic journal devoted to the
>study of contemporary film around the world. Recent
>developments have brought about a renewal of film industries in the
>Far and Middle East, Europe, Africa and America. However, there
>is a marked tendency to focus exclusively upon issues of otherness
>and marginality, ignoring the specificities of these films. New
>Cinemas challenges this value judgment to explore approaches that
>posit the egalitarian value of cinema.
>There is a strong focus on what is happening now. The focus is
>on work being produced and new ways of approaching evaluation of
>this work ­ not as if the work is done in a historical vacuum, but on
>current work: We recognise filmmakers in Argentina or in Iran
>always have behind them a tradition they can use or react against: we
>believe the whole experience of avant-garde film-making and the
>explosion of styles to come out of the 1960s is relevant to ­ and
>accounts for ­ the work of contemporary film-makers. This journal
>breaks down barriers and places World cinema on an equal footing
>with the mainstream by creating a space where marginal voices
>can find a vehicle for expression.
>The journal invites contributions from a wide and diverse
>community of researchers. It seeks to generate and promote
>research from both experienced researchers and to encourage those
>new to this field. The aim is to provide a forum for debate arising
>from findings as well as theory and methodologies. A range of
>research approaches and methods is encouraged. The research field
>of New Cinemas will include first the specificities of current work in
>the New Cinemas, across the broadest possible geographic range,
>furthering understanding of the specific through the articulation of an
