  1. Hello!
    I’ve sort of retired & don’t do much teaching now, but I’m still following The Case for Global Film & this book site very keenly, & have just seen your MEA message “Please visit the site and leave suggestions as to the films/topics you would like to see covered”. How about some more Dardenne Bros -there’s nothing about them in the book & only The Kid with a Bike here- maybe The Silence of Lorna, or Rosetta, & your Bradford talk on Two Days One Night. Also maybe The Edukators is due for a revival (to go with Night Moves), & also my last AL classes liked Head On & The Edge of Heaven…
    Best wishes

    1. Hi Steve

      Good to hear from you. These are good points. There is actually a posting on The Silence of Lorna on this blog and I’m in the process of uploading a substantial piece on the Dardennes (including the notes from the Bradford intro). It should be up later this week. I did think about The Edukators when I was watching Night Moves. I will go back and look at my itp stuff on the film. Both the Fatih Akin titles you mention are on both blogs (and can be found via the ‘Search’ facility or in the Turkish Cinema category). I’m not sure if the new Fatih Akin film will get a release – the last one didn’t. If it does I will definitely go to see it.

      I hope you are enjoying your ‘sort of’ retirement – I know what you mean.

  2. Hi Roy. This is Badewa Ajibade, an intern at a small film production company in Toronto. We will be screening a film, Dante at the Columbus centre, 901 Lawrence Avenue W, Toronto and would like to send you a press release so you can help create some awareness about our film on your blog. A screener could also be made available for you should you wish so you can have reviews of the film on your blog as well. Please do not hesitate to contact me if this is something that you may be interested in and I’ll put you in touch with the producer. Thank you

  3. Hi,
    On behalf of, an online magazine promoting Polish culture abroad, run by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute I would like to recommend to your attention our latest article about “Ashes and Diamonds” film:
    I think that you and your followers may find it interesting. If you also think so, I would be grateful if you could share it on your website and social media sites. I also recommend you our full resources library dedicated to polish film:
    Best wishes,

  4. Hi, I work with Mahla Filmes (, a Mozambican production company. In a couple of months we’ll start shooting an independent feature in the city of Maputo. It’s our first feature film. We will soon launch a crowd funding campaign to support the film. We’d love to know if Global Film Studies would be interested in knowing more about the campaign and the film and perhaps help us spread the word? We have filmed a film trailer for the campaign – which will be made available on Indiegogo and social media once the campaign launches officially. This is a first approach, we are open to any suggestions / guidelines you might have, should you find the idea interesting. We’d love to share more information about the film and us, Mahla Filmes. Thank you! Khanimambo! 🙂 Maura

  5. Dear Roy,

    I am looking for the expertise of you. Could you recomment me an author who’s writing about documentary films from the global south theming nature, environmental destruction and climate change? At best also but indigenous perspectives on this topic…

    All the Best


    1. The short answer is no, I don’t know about any specific writers specialising in writing about documentary along the lines you are interested in. That doesn’t mean that they don’t exist, only that I don’t know of them. Film scholars tend to specialise and I’m sure there are some who cover documentary as part of a regional specialism and there will be others interested in film and media studies and climate change, de-forestation etc. Yet others will be interested in indigenous cinemas. My starting point tends to be the films themselves.

      I would suggest that as well as searching for book titles using the terms documentary, indigenous cinema etc., you look at the programmes and commentaries associated with film festivals taking documentary or green politics as their specialisms. You can also check out the green campaigning organisations themselves – sometimes their magazines or websites will carry essays or reviews about documentary films. I’m sure you have probably already done this, but if not it might help get you started. Good luck!
