    DescriptionNo student of film can afford to be without "The Film Studies Dictionary". It bridges the gap between dictionaries that are primarily academic and theoretical and those that deal mainly in technical jargon. Above all it is aimed at students of film and media who are likely to encounter a wide range of specialist language in a variety of places - in film reviews, critical writing, interviews with film-makers and stars, academic publications and the Internet. It makes this specialist language accessible and many entries use examples taken from a wide range of films both classic and contemporary to illustrate concepts in operation. Some of the entries offer concise definitions for instant reference, while more complex topics receive extended coverage supplemented by up-to-date further reading. Whether you are a film goer wanting to know the authoritative definition of 'best boy' and 'gaffer' or a student of film studying 'post-colonial theory' and 'third cinema' this dictionary will meet your needs.

    Review quote
    '... [an] excellent new publication. The authors, with many years of experience in teaching and writing behind them, are well able to distill the material and present a coherent reference guide. Everything you would expect to find is here and it is difficult to argue with any of the definitions... authoritative but accessible definitions that every film student (and every film teacher) will gratefully seize.' Roy Stafford, In the Picture Very comprehensive with references to all the major movements, both theoretic and philosophic. Plugincinema (website) This glossary has a place in any library wishing to serve students of cinema. Choice Para el aficionado serio y para los jovenes interesados en estudiar cine un libro como "The Film Studies Dictionary"...les sera muy util. Centro de Cultura Cinematografica Irazu
