Film Studies For Free took a little break to meet a few deadlines in the last two weeks. Normal service resumes this week, thankfully.
Today, though, FSFF posts links to some recently uploaded audio files which very valuably record great interviews with the contributors to an important workshop conference that took place last March at Oxford University.
The event explored the topic of Remix Cinema: the collaborative making, deconstruction and distribution of digital artefacts, and was part of a wider project exploring the role of audio-visual remix practices in contemporary digital culture.
Thanks to everyone taking part for making these excellent resources available to everyone working in the field.

Film Studies for Free rushes you the wonderful news that a special issue (no. 32) of Screening the Past has just gone online. The issue treats the topic of Screen Attachments and is edited by Catherine Fowler and Paola Voci.
The obvious highlight is a brilliant article by Francesco Casetti, but a quick glance at all the other articles indicates a very high quality issue indeed. FSFF‘s own favourite is Fowler and Voci’s study ‘Brief Encounters: Theorizing Screen Attachments Outside the Movie Theatre’, with its compelling use of Sara Ahmed‘s notion of orientation.
The Classics and Reruns section also has some real gems.
