ReFocus: A Series of Film Studies Anthologies: The International Director
In 2015, the University of Edinburgh Press launched a multivolume series of scholarly, refereed anthologies entitled ReFocus: The American Directors Series.

The series editors, Dr. Gary D. Rhodes (Queens University, Belfast) and Dr. Robert Singer (CUNY Graduate Center, Liberal Studies), have already published volumes edited by leading film scholars on Preston Sturges, Delmer Daves, Budd Boetticher, and Amy Heckerling.
