Call For Papers

British cinema has undergone significant transformation between the establishment of the UK Film Council in 2000 and its abolition in 2011. In light of recent changes to British film financing brought about by government spending cuts, it seems a timely moment to reflect on the social, cultural and aesthetic significance of British cinema throughout the first decade of the twenty-first century. During this time, the British film industry stimulated economic investment to create opportunities for a host of film ventures for both emerging and established British talent alike. From the international success of the Harry Potter films to the art-house acclaim of Fish Tank, British cinema has been characterised by consistency and diversity. The dialogue between British cinema and European and Hollywood cinemas is stronger than ever, while the boundaries are weaker. These films of the twenty-first century have encouraged renewed reflections on the concept of British cinema and its impact on the global market place. Using a wide-ranging selection of films, this collection will offer a detailed and comprehensive analysis of British cinema in the 21st century, critically examining its development and legacy.

The editors welcome interdisciplinary and subject-specific approaches to 21st Century British Cinema. Topics may include, but are not limited to: UK Film Council, British Film Production, Distribution and Exhibition since 2001, Short Films, British Cinema Audiences, Devolution and British Film, British Film and Television, British Art Cinema, British Popular Cinema, British Music and Film, Straight-to-DVD Production, British Stars, UK Film Industry and Film Education, Film Funding (National and Regional), British Film and International Film Festivals, British Film and Digital Media, British Cinema and Europe, British Cinema and Hollywood, British Film Tourism.

Articles should be between 5500-6000 words and will be due by April 21, 2012.

Abstracts of 300-350 words and a brief bio should be sent to and by August 21, 2011.
