FilmSight is the online journal for film studies postgraduates (or those Postgraduates whose research is connected to film) to have articles published online. The intention of FilmSight is to become a cyber testing ground for emerging debates, ideas and areas of interest stemming from postgraduate research. All submissions will go through a rigorous review process by an editorial board of six postgraduate researchers. FilmSight is supported by established academics in the field of Film Studies, including Professor Susan Hayward and Professor Steve Neale of the University of Exeter and Dr Mark Shiel of King's College, London.
