UC Press is excited to share with you some new publications and recent highlights from the University of California Press’s Film and Media Studies list. UC Press has the oldest scholarly cinema studies list in the country, which has always emphasized the history of cinema as an art form and as an industry, avant-garde and experimental cinema, and nonfiction or documentary studies.

If you would like to meet Film and Media Studies editor Raina Polivka, schedule a meeting here. Read Raina’s editor spotlight to find out more about what types of projects she’s looking for.
