Studies in Australasian Cinema is a scholarly journal devoted to the screen cultures of, and film scholarship from, the Australian, New Zealand, and Pacific region. The journal features academic articles focusing on current and historical trends, representations, themes, styles, debates and scholarly work from across the region's rich cinema culture. In doing so, Studies in Australasian Cinema asks:What shapes, and has shaped the contemporary filmmaking landscape and screen cultures in the region? What theoretical and critical discussions of cinema and associated formats are, and have been in the past, the most visible in Australasia? What policies, practices, modalities and technologies define Australasian cinema and associated imagemaking?

Topics on any aspect of the above might include, but are not limited to:

Cinema and postcolonialism ‘National’ cinemas Australasian independent film-making and films/television Australasian global commercial film-making and films The representation of the region, specific countries, cultures and its peoples in global cinema, and other national screen cultures The local and international work of Australasian writers, directors, and actors Reception of Australasian films in the region and around the world – Reception

Studies in Australasian Cinema is published three times a year. The journal publishes general articles on a rolling basis, and frequently publishes themed issues, or collections of papers developed from regional conferences or events exploring screen history, scholarship, production or exhibition. The journal regularly includes reviews of publications, film collections, theses and festivals, as well as the Vaultage section focusing on influential texts and/ or individuals. The journal maintains a focus on commercial and independent work across the region, and changing contexts of production and reception with respect to both.
