Film Studies: National Cinemas

This guide highlights selected resources for various national cinemas.


This guide highlights library resources for Palestinian film. The guide also incorporates resources originally on William Fontaine's guide for Palestinian film. There were duplications between my guide and his. However, he did highlight film titles, directors and formats in his guide. Thanks to Bill!

Keeping up with the journal literature

Want an easy way to keep up with the journal literature for a national or regional cinema? And you use a mobile device? You can install the BrowZine app and create a custom Bookshelf of your favorite journal titles. Then you will get the Table of Contents (ToCs) of your favorite journals automatically delivered to you when they become available. Once you have the ToC's you can download and read the articles you want.

You can get the app from the App Store or Google Play.

Don't own or use a mobile device? You can still use BrowZine! It's now available in a web version. You can get to it here. The web version works the same way as the app version. Find the journals you like, create a custom Bookshelf, get ToCs and read the articles you want.
