The Projector: A Journal on Film, Media, and Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 1, 2018

The Projector is developing a special issue on film and media productions created by and for individuals and constituencies interested in something other than standard Hollywood fare.  The issue is for research that illuminates the cultural, historical, aesthetic, or material dimensions of productions that contribute to the remarkable but far less visible traditions of independent, international, or DIY film and media – traditions that give voice to people consistently left out of Hollywood’s long history of insular, hegemonic, and formulaic representations.
