Journal of the Moving Image

JMI, published by the Department of Film Studies, seeks to represent critical work on the state of contemporary screen cultures. There are many regions in our neighbourhood with large viewing populations, often with vast production infrastructures for film and television; but corresponding institutions or forums for critical engagement with such audio-visual regimes are still highly inadequate in Sotuh Asia. JMI seeks to address a broad set of issues ranging from formal properties of the moving image to the social foundation of its production, transmission and reception. There is a special focus on India and South Asia, and on issues of transnational media transactions, but the journal offers a wide range of discussion on film and television from various parts of the world.
