Aims & scope

 

Rejecting the dichotomies of ‘high' and ‘low' cinema, Film International embraces debate on how film interacts with the broader culture, history and economy of society. This magazine aims to encourage critical study and public discussion of the role of moving images in our society, bridging the gap between academics and cineastes.
