We are currently seeking submissions to be published on a rolling basis in future issues.
/FC is a peer-reviewed publication now in its 40^th  year of continuous publication, making it the third oldest academic film journal in the United States.  Our aim is to bring together work in the field of film and media studies that foregrounds textual criticism as a primary value. Our readership is generally academic, but we strive to publish material that is accessible to a broader popular audience.

While our title suggests a focus on film, we are equally interested in articles that engage moving-image media of all forms, such as television or online video. FC is also committed to developing criticism that derives from a cultural studies tradition -- that is, criticism that situates media texts in a political context and recognizes the role culture plays in reproducing and maintaining social and power relations.
