full name / name of organization: 
Film Education Journal

The Film Education Journal (FEJ) is the world’s only publication committed to exploring how teachers and other educators work with film, and to involving other participants – policymakers, academics, researchers, cultural agencies and film-makers themselves – in that conversation. The journal publishes a range of article types, aimed at reaching our diverse academic and practitioner audience. FEJ welcomes submissions for its eighth edition (to be published in November 2021). Full submission guidelines and information can be found here:


Article types

  • Scholarly articles featuring research, analysis and theoretical consideration of film-education practices (5,000-8,000 words).
  • A case study of a film that has been made during a programme of film education. This could be written by the teacher/workshop leader, perhaps incorporating testimony from participants (2,000-6,000 words).
  • case study or broader consideration of a particular film-education project, methodology or technology (2,000-6,000 words).
  • An interview with a classroom teacher about their experience of a film-education project or the experience of making a film with students (1,500-3,000 words).
  • national or regional survey of film-education approaches in a given part of the world or a historical survey of differing approaches through time (5,000-8,000 words).
  • broader reflection on the experience of a film-education practitioner: an experienced practitioner reflects upon their practical experience over a broad time period, and some of the themes emerging from it (3,000-6,000 words).
  • An evaluation of a film-education project from a perspective beyond the project (2,000-5,000 words).
  • An article by a policymaker advocating for a particular approach to film education in a particular sector (3,000-6,000 words).
  • We are particularly interested in pairs of articles looking at an issue or area of film education from academic and non-academic perspectives; essays in conversation with each other.
  • As a journal giving priority to international content, we are interested in contributions looking at film education from anywhere in the world, and would particularly encourage contributions from those outside the UK.
  • Translations - in each issue of FEJ, we aim to include an influential article previously published in another language. The translation is peer reviewed.
