9780415783569: World Cinema: A Critical Introduction

This textbook offers a critical introduction to the topic of world cinema that explores the transition that has taken place since the 1980s. Offering an introduction to the concept of world cinema itself, it explores some of the dominant theoretical perspectives in film studies and outlines a clear definition of world cinema as a polycentric, polymorphic and polyvalent formation. It proposes that - along with Hollywood - other cinematic centres such as Bollywood, Nollywood, Asian Cinema and European cinema, are equally as important. It also explores the impact caused by the changes to the way audiences watch films, film production and finance patterns, and the growth of film festivals.
