Short Film Studies is a peer-reviewed journal designed to encourage research by new and established scholars and critics that reflects both the historical importance and the increasing prominence and diversity of short films in today,s media landscape.
The primary purposes and scope of SFS include the following:
1. To provide a useful resource that enables short film appreciation and study for instructors, scholars, critics, students and filmmakers.
2. Each issue includes a focus on a theme or topic of relevance to short film and media studies,
3. Each issue showcases a selected short film, with a shot-by-shot breakdown and filmmaker,s interview,
4. An open Call for Papers is observed in order to encourage submissions from short film and media scholars that reflect their own research interests.
A principal focus is on short fiction films, with additional attention to non-fiction, commercial and non-commercial, and other narrative shorts, as well as to short form filmmakers, genres, festivals and curation. The aim is to reflect the inclusivity of short form media and shorts filmmakers, and the variety of scholarly and critical approaches that are relevant to the form.
