Please join us for the book launch for the new edited collection - Besides the Screen:Moving Images through Distribution, Promotion and Curation edited by Gabriel Menotti Gonring and Virginia Crisp.

Besides the Screen seeks to make an intervention into film and screen studies by examining and considering the elements of cinematic experience, production and dissemination that exist beside the screen. New media technologies impact cinema well beyond the screen; they also promote the reorganization of its logic of distribution, modes of consumption and viewing regimes. This publication speculates about the changes in modes of accessing, distributing, storing and promoting moving images and how they might affect cinematographic experience, economy and historiography. In doing so, Besides the Screen examines three key themes: distribution, promotion and curation. The volume's main argument is that we must examine those practices that exist besides the screen if we are to consider fully how filmic experience is mediated by various technological and societal changes in the early decades of the twenty-first century.
Hardback copies of the book will be on sale on the night for the discounted price of £42 (yes, we know it is still expensive but please come along for the wine and nibbles anyway!).
