IJFMA VOL. 5 NO. 2 (2020)

The latest issue of the International Journal of Film and Media Arts – IJFMA, in partnership with the GEECT (Groupement Européen Des Écoles de Cinéma et de Télévision/The European Grouping of Film and Television Schools), is now available online. This special issue is an entrée that maps out some of the artistic research in cinema, in collaboration with several GEECT schools. The papers provide examples of transdisciplinary approaches and methods in technology, pedagogy, representational politics and aesthetic enquiries in film practices. Drawing from the GEECT conference in January 2020 on Artistic Research and Film Practice, this special issue is enriching to see the active participation and interest it has aroused in the various schools, resulting in the publication of several articles representing some of the best film schools in Europe. The development of a film research environment is essential for the creation of a culture of film research and this objective is captured by the breath and scope of the practices with, in and through film and contributes to the ongoing debates on the relevance and impact of artistic research The launch of this special issue was coordinated by Manuel José Damásio, president of GEECT and director of the Film and Media Arts Department at Lusófona University, and Jyoti Mistry, professor and researcher at HDK-Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, who worked together on the edition of this issue. IJFMA, recently accepted for indexing at Scopus, is a biannual publication of the Film and Media Arts Department focusing on all areas of film and media research and criticism, such as animation, television, media arts and video games, and their various social and cultural forms of expression and materialization.
