Trash Cinema: A Primer for Beginners (collection)

UPDATED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 1 January, 2006

CALL FOR PAPERS: Collection of critical essays on trash cinema

We invite submissions for a critical anthology about the ever-expanding
world of national and international trash cinema.

As fans of trash cinema, while we do like to think of the form as being
utterly anti- or counter- "mainstream" cinema, in the ways it challenges
or reworks many of its assumptions, we are amazed at how many trash
favorites (both personal and more perennial, if such a thing exists)
have a striking formal similarity to - as well as an appeal for devotees
of - the "traditional" film canon's fare.
