Cinema at the periphery by Project Muse( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Iceland to Iran, from Singapore to Scotland, a growing intellectual and cultural wave of production is taking cinema beyond the borders of its place of origin - exploring faraway places, interacting with barely known peoples, and making new localities imaginable. In these films, previously entrenched spatial divisions no longer function as firmly fixed grid coordinates, the hierarchical position of place as 'center' is subverted, and new forms of representation become possible. In Cinema at the Periphery, editors Dina Iordanova, David Martin-Jones, and Belén Vidal assemble criticism that explores issues of the periphery, including questions of transnationality, place, space, passage, and migration. Cinema at the Periphery examines the periphery in terms of locations, practices, methods, and themes. It includes geographic case studies of small national cinemas located at the global margins, like New Zealand and Scotland, but also of filmmaking that comes from peripheral cultures, like Palestinian 'stateless' cinema, Australian Aboriginal films, and cinema from Quebec. Therefore, the volume is divided into two key areas: industries and markets on the one hand, and identities and histories on the other. Yet as a whole, the contributors illustrate that the concept of 'periphery' is not fixed but is always changing according to patterns of industry, ideology, and taste. Cinema at the Periphery highlights the inextricable interrelationship that exists between production modes and circulation channels and the emerging narratives of histories and identities they enable. In the present era of globalization, this timely examination of the periphery will interest teachers and students of film and media studies

During their honeymoon, Miss Canada does not accept the "golden" penis of her husband, and with the help of black man Jeremiah Muscle, she runs away to Paris. There she meets a Latin singer, El Macho, they have intercourse in the Eiffel Tower and get stuck together. She moves to a weird anarchic community and later becomes an actress working in a chocolate advertisement. Meanwhile, the revolutionary, pedophile, and mad killer Anna Planeta makes candy in her boat while sailing through the canals of a city that seems to be Amsterdam. She meets the sailor Potemkin and they have a torrid affair. Meanwhile, she uses her candies to seduce young boys and kill her lovers. In the middle of the story, what seems to be footage of a Nazi doctor and a slaughter in a war with many dead bodies is presented. Makavejev's bizarre and pointedly satirical vision is totally uncompromising and filled with shocking images, looking at sex in all its complexities

Digital disruption : cinema moves on-line( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and Italian and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nobody knows anything', said William Goldman of studio filmmaking. This statement is proving increasingly apt as we begin to survey the radical changes that digital distribution, together with the digitisation of production and exhibition, is wreaking on global film circulation. Will digital dissemination produce a massive disruption to the film industry, as it did to mail delivery services, bookselling and music distribution? Is cinema about to move on-line? 'Digital Disruption: Cinema Moves On-line' helps to make sense of what has happened in the short but turbulent history of on-line distribution. It provides a realistic assessment of the disruptions that moving from 'analogue dollars' to 'digital cents' has provoked in the film industry. Looking closely at how the majors have dealt - often unsuccessfully - with these challenges it also pays equal attention to innovations and practices outside the mainstream

The Resources section features an up-to-date bibliography on film festival scholarship and an extensive thematically-organised listing of a variety of transnational festivals
The film festival reader( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the importance of film festivals in the context of film culture at large? What logic reigns within the film festival galaxy? Are film festivals tools of power and prestige that make or break the fate of a film? Or do they effectively seal diverse and unique cinema from the wider public whilst simultaneously professing to celebrate it? What are the key features and who are the key stakeholders of the film festival? What, if anything, is wrong with the concept of 'festival films'? What makes a good film festival good or a bad one bad? It is these and other questions that are raised and treated in the classic texts included in this collection. Festivals, for so long a key component of film culture, have been ignored in film studies scholarship that is still dominated by textual approaches. They were neither consistently discussed in the public domain nor were they included in teaching related to film history. This is now rapidly changing. Nowadays, we see a proliferation of concrete and general studies on film festivals and the emergence of a fuller understanding of the actual dynamics of film culture. It is in this context that we offer a representative anthology that collects some of the important texts that have fostered the thinking on festivals so far.--

Film festivals and the Middle East( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Du site de l'éd.: The Film Festival Yearbooks have, by and large, been devoted to theoretical and conceptual issues. With this new installment, we go back to the format of FFY3, and focus on a geographical area this time we focus on the Middle East. The Middle East in the title of this book is a diverse, varied, multiple and contested area. It is not an area that can be regarded as one or united . And indeed, we acknowledge that in our coverage we somewhat stretch the concept. This allows us to test the scope of a regional consciousness related to a sequence of associated lands that are not usually referenced by a single term. By investigating the film culture and the respective film festivals of this wider area, we reveal how a culturally-informed geopolitical scope can ultimately shape a distinct and evolving take on the world. Exploring the history and politics of film festivals that are located in non-Western territories and that are thus often influenced by distinctive ideologues and agendas permits us to not only register difference but also see the logic that shapes the diversity. These are festivals that foreground cinematic texts from lesser-known aesthetic and conceptual traditions and display them in unique contexts. The cinemas and the narratives featured here reflect the political and cultural dynamics of an area that alternates between vibrant and volatile. This book then looks in much detail at the large international and smaller national film festivals that take place in the Middle East and North Africa: their programming, audience development and event organisation. This collection of essays investigates the circuit of films, the impact of festivals and the representation of the Middle Eastern peoples, cultures and languages on international screens. This is a study of the many festivals that have shaped the cultural identities of the region in the past, as well as the new and vibrant festivals that permeate the region
