Film Matters is an exciting film magazine, celebrating the work of undergraduate film scholars. It is published three times a year, by students and for students, and each issue contains feature articles, as well as a healthy reviews section. In addition, with an undergraduate audience in mind, Film Matters will include occasional service-oriented pieces, such as profiles of film studies departments, articles that engage the undergraduate film studies community and prepare students for graduate study in this field, and resources and opportunities that undergraduate scholars can pursue. In an effort to give undergraduate scholars real-world, applied learning experiences, all Film Matters feature submissions will undergo a peer review process.

The views and opinions of all posts, including reviews and interviews, are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent or reflect those of the editors, the editorial board, or the advisory board.

Film Matters is published by Intellect with support from the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
