This website publishes work on contemporary cinema written by students and staff in the film studies department at Queen Mary, University of London. The work is edited and published by a student-run editorial board. At present our focus is on US, German and Russian cinema. However, we are keen to extend this coverage and would like to hear from people who teach contemporary cinema and who might be interested in learning more about the writing, editing and publishing process, and perhaps also in offering their own students’ work for publication.
The strongest pieces of writing each year are published in the undergraduate film studies journal, Film Matters which has a regular Mapping Contemporary Cinema column.
