[ecrea] Alphaville Issue 8 Now Online

Tue Feb 10 18:28:41 GMT 2015

The Editorial Board of Alphaville: Journal of Film and Screen Media is delighted to present Issue 8:

“Animation at the Cutting Edge”

Edited by Yuanyuan Chen (University of Ulster) and Laura Rascaroli (University College Cork)

Now online at

An increasingly inventive use of animation has profoundly enriched cinematic language at both visual and narrative levels, and has sparked new debates among artists, critics and theorists on differently focussed themes, such as the relationship between animation and reality and the impact of digital animation techniques, also calling for the crafting of new theoretical approaches for animation. It is to these current debates that this issue of Alphaville aims to contribute.
