Description:

Film Studies: A Global Introduction reroutes film studies from its Euro-American focus and canon in order to introduce students to a medium that has always been global but has become differently and insistently so in the digital age.Glyn Davis, Kay Dickinson, Lisa Patti and Amy Villarejo's approach encourages readers to think about film holistically by looking beyond simple analysis of key films, to also engage with other vital areas, such as production, distribution, ideas of industry and audience, and issues of film manufacturing and preservation, reflecting contemporary aspects of cinema consumption worldwide.Key features of the book include:* clear definitions of the key themes and terms at the foundation of film studies* coverage of the work of key thinkers, explained in their social and historical context * a broad range of globally relevant examples from film, television, gaming and new media, all clearly referenced for readers throughout the text* exercises to help readers further develop an understanding of film's history and global industrial development.Films Studies: A Global Introduction will appeal to students studying film today and aspiring to work in the industry, as well as those eager to understand the world of images and screens in which we all live.
