A Dictionary of Film Studies covers all aspects of its discipline as it is currently taught at undergraduate level. Offering exhaustive and authoritative coverage, this A-Z is written by experts in the field, and covers terms, concepts, debates, and movements in film theory and criticism; national, international, and transnational cinemas; film history, movements, and genres; film industry organizations and practices; and key technical terms and concepts. Since its first publication in 2012, the dictionary has been updated to incorporate over 40 new entries, including computer games and film, disability, ecocinema, identity, portmanteau film, Practice as Research, and film in Vietnam. Moreover, numerous revisions have been made to existing entries to account for developments in the discipline, and changes to film institutions more generally. Indices of films and filmmakers mentioned in the text are included for easy access to relevant entries. The dictionary also has 13 feature articles on popular topics and terms, revised and informative bibliographies for most entries, and more than 100 web links to supplement the text.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition 'Rich, thought-provoking, and diverse' * Mark Cousins, creator of The Story of Film: An Odyssey *
'This important work [is] affordable to film students, to whom I would strongly recommend it. It also has benefits for more advanced scholars who may want to quickly check less familiar terms and concepts when writing articles or preparing class materials' * Sylvie Magerstadt, Film and History *
'Impressive for range and readability ... An unusually absorbing reference work for students and film buffs alike' * The Independent *
'I could find little to fault in this work... [it] will ... enhance understanding for anyone interested in film and film criticism' * Bob Duckett, Reference Reviews *
