Founded in 1976, Film Criticism recently completed its twenty-eighth
year of continuous publication, making it the third oldest academic
film journal in the country. FC has published the work of such
international scholars as Dudley Andrew, David Bordwell, David Cook,
Robin Wood, Janet Staiger, Ann Kaplan, Andrew Horton, Wheeler Winston
Dixon, Marcia Landy, and Peter Lehman. Equally important, we continue
to present the very best writing from a new generation of film
historians, theorists, and critics representing many different
disciplines, cultures, and critical perspectives. "The critical
analysis found in the essay-length articles is of a particularly high
quality... Researchers will profit from the excellent book review
section " (Katz's Magazines for Libraries). In addition, Film Criticism
regularly publishes single-theme issues, extensive interviews, and
festival reports.

Film Criticism is published three times a year (Fall, Winter, Spring)
by Allegheny College, Meadville, PA 1635. Film Criticism is indexed in
Film Literature Index, FIAF International Index to Film Periodicals,
Humanities Citation Index, MLA International Bibliography, and Literary
Criticism register.
