Open Screens is the open-access online journal of the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies. The scope of the journal is international and its vision is inter-disciplinary. It encourages innovative contributions from scholars of film, television and other screen-based media, publishing research articles, commentaries, reviews and audio-visual research-by-film-practice.
In keeping with the mission of BAFTSS, contributions from both established and postgraduate scholars are considered, and contributors do not need to be members of the Association.
Open Screens ranges over the historical and the contemporary, and it aims to embrace film, television, screen and media studies, as well as related disciplines across the Humanities and beyond, such as area studies, gender studies and sexuality studies.
