Other occasional features of CJFS/RCEC are “Ciné-Documents” (rare and archival materials relevant to film study) and “Ciné-Forum” in which we publish short articles (maximum 2500 words) on any topic of interest to film students and scholars. Possible topics include debates on current contributions to film theory, history, criticism, and pedagogy; information about archives, special collections, and other sources for research; commentary on little-known or under-appreciated individuals, organizations, and films; translations; interviews; reviews of DVDs that have particular relevance to archival, critical, or pedagogical aspects of film studies.

CJFS/RCEC uses a double-blind refereeing process. Suitable submissions are read by at least two referees. The journal does not pay contributors; authors will receive a PDF of their published article along with five complimentary copies of the issue in which it appears.
