About the Author:

Ian Hadyn Smith is a London-based film writer and critic. He is the co-author of New Chinese Cinema: Challenging Representation (2002), co-editor of Wim Wenders (2008), and series editor of Wallflower Press's 24 Frames series on national and regional cinema.

Review:

Not so much a compendium of reviews as a complex overview of the year in world cinema, the IFG folds in reports from some of the world's best film writers in over 120 countries. More a text you'll dip in and out of than a straight read, but it remains the best publication on its subject. (Empire)

The amount of information is staggering and anyone with the smallest interest in film will add dozens of titles to his or her "must see" list. The selection of experts is first rate as well... The International Film Guide is a delight to browse, and read. An indispensable addition to any film lover's bookshelf. (Wout Thielemans Moviescope)

It is impossible to find so much important data about the most recent film production compressed and collected in one place... This heavy volume will certainly deliver its money's worth... For the sheer number of intriguing titles I first found out about here, this book cannot be compared to any other. (Dejan Ognjanovic Beyond Hollywood)

This excellent, necessary, country-by-country guide continues to chronicle the darlings and the disappointments from all corners of the earth. (Gary M. Kramer Filmbill)

An invaluable research tool that serves as a refreshing reminder of the amazing creative activity too frequently eclipsed by Hollywood. Highly recommended. (Savannah Schroll Guz Library Journal Review)
