Contemporary Cinema centers upon screen productions since the turn of the millennium in order to chart the rapidly unfolding landscape of the moving image. The series tracks recent shifts in the world of cinema from a wide array of viewpoints: emerging movements, styles, and practices; new ways of thinking about cinema; as well as ongoing expansions of ‘the cinematic’ across the spheres of television, new media, and beyond. Titles devoted to such developments—in film culture, theory, reception, or industry—could cover a broad cross-section of cases or concentrate on a sole landmark film. Of special importance to the series are cinemas and phenomena that remain underseen and overlooked.

Proposals for single-authored monographs and edited volumes are equally welcome.

All submissions are subject to a double-anonymous peer-review process prior to publication.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals to the publisher at BRILL, Masja Horn.
