Lights Film Journal "Bright Lights Film Journal is a popular-academic
hybrid of movie analysis, history, and commentary, looking at classic and
commercial, independent, exploitation, and international film from a wide
range of vantage points from the aesthetic to the political. A prime area
of focus is on the connection between capitalist society and the images
that reflect, support, or subvert it—movies as propaganda."

journal in the field, published by the Society for Cinema Studies."The Journal
presents recent scholarship by SCS members. It publishes essays on a wide
variety of subjects from diverse methodological perspectives. A "Professional
Notes" section informs Society of Cinema Studies readers about upcoming
events, research opportunities, and the latest published research."

texts are available on English and East European Languages.

to further the use of film sources in teaching and research, to disseminate
information about film and film use to historians and other social scientists,
to work for an effective system of film preservation so that scholars may
have ready access to film archives, and to organize periodic conferences
and seminars dealing with film."

Film Festival - festival of silent movies.
Journal of Film, Radio and Television (1981 -). Because of clumsy
configurations of the publisher, you will have to choose the journal from
the alphabetical list at the publisher's homepage.
"Scope is an entirely free online journal of film studies edited by staff
and students within the Institute
of Film Studies at the University
of Nottingham. As our title suggests,
we provide a forum for discussion of all aspects of film history, theory
and criticism. It is our belief that an electronic publication such as Scope
can best serve its readers interests by promoting as wide a range of approaches
and critical methodologies as possible. New book and film reviews are published
every three months, and new articles are posted every six months."
"Senses of Cinema is an online film journal devoted to the serious and eclectic
discussion of cinema. It has been set up to address a lack of cinephilic
writing in local discourse, that is, writing sprung from the desire to think
and write seriously, knowledgeably and passionately about film. Senses of
Cinema is unique in its eclecticism: it encourages articles of all styles
(casual, personal, academic, critical, impressionistic and poetic - or a
combination of these), analytical approaches (thematic, psychoanalytic,
etc) and subject matter. The only criteria that we prescribe are that all
articles are demonstrably passionate, serious, intelligent and insightful
reflections and/or analyses on the topic of cinema. Senses of Cinema promotes
various divergent "voices" that speak to a wide and diverse audience. It
aims to bring together a mix of writers: established and emerging, theorists
and un-published cinephiles, filmmakers and film programmers, and local
and international writers. We are particularly committed to discussing art,
independent, experimental and third world cinemas (everything from Renoir
to Antonioni to Solàs to Oshima to Morrissey to Jost to Friedrich to Snow,
feature films as well as short films) , theorising new encounters with digital
technologies, and promoting writing that increases one’s understanding and
appreciation of cinema."
Silent Majority "The Silents Majority On-line Journal of Silent
Film is dedicated to keeping the art of silent film alive. It is also dedicated
to posthumously reactivating the careers of the great artists of the silent
screen. If we can't assist you directly with your questions, we can get
you in touch with other silent film specialists from around the world. Although
the books, films, and other related artifacts are mostly looked after by
devoted "superbuffs," it is important to note that you don't need to be
an expert on Van Gogh or Rembrant to enjoy their vision and artistic expression...But
if you want to delve deeper, participate in reviving the art, or solve some
fascinating mysteries relating to silent film (as well as crossover artists
who continued into early sound,) then The Silents Majority is for you!!!"
