Introduction: South by South/West Asia: Transregional Histories of Middle East–South Asia Cinemas


Film History publishes original research on the international history of cinema, broadly and inclusively understood.  Its areas of interest are the production, distribution, exhibition, and reception of films designed for commercial theaters as well as the full range of nontheatrical, noncommercial uses of motion pictures; the role of cinema as a contested cultural phenomenon; the technological, economic, political, and legal aspects of film history; the circulation of film within and across national borders; and the relations between film and other visual media and forms of commercial entertainment.
