Film History: An International Journal, published by Indiana University Press for the past decade, is now housed in Indiana University's Film and Media Studies Program in the Department of Communication and Culture in the College of Arts and Sciences.

The editorial team encourages new queries and submissions for original research on the international history of cinema, from pre-cinema to the 21st century, broadly and inclusively understood. Areas of interest include the production, distribution, exhibition, and reception of films designed for commercial theaters, as well as the full range of non-theatrical, non-commercial uses of motion pictures; the role of cinema as a contested cultural phenomena; the technological, economic, political, and legal aspects of film history; the circulation of film within and across national borders; and the relations between film and other visual media and forms of commercial entertainment. Film History also welcomes proposals for review essays and reassessments of classic texts in film history.
