New issue of Journal of Chinese Cinemas available

The newest issue of the Journal of Chinese Cinemas, edited by Song Hwee Lim and Julian Ward, is now available online. The current issue bears a special focus on topics related to Chinese independent cinema, with essays on such topics as: independent documentaries dealing with the topic of migration; the beleaguered independent film festival Yunfest; and the documentary filmmaker Zhao Liang.

Entering its seventh volume, Journal of Chinese Cinemas is a major refereed academic publication devoted to the study of Chinese film, drawing on the recent world-wide growth of interest in Chinese cinemas. An incredibly diverse range of films has emerged from all parts of the Chinese-speaking world over the last few years, with an ever increasing number of border-crossing collaborative efforts prominent among them. These exciting developments provide abundant ground for academic research.
