Cinema: Journal of Philosophy and the Moving Image è la rivista portoghese pubblicata dall’Instituto de Filosofia da Linguagem (Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa) all’interno del progetto di ricerca “Film and Philosophy: Mapping an Encounter” (PTDC/FIL-FIL/098143/2008).
“The journal publishes original essays and critical articles, reviews, conference reports and interviews, and releases original art work in the field of philosophical inquiry into cinema. The term “cinema” is here taken in its broadest sense as moving image (and image that moves). Historically, cinema studies have centered on film, but with the digitization and proliferation of new means of production and distribution have also studied video, television and new media. This deep engagement with cinematic culture, so understood, can provide tools for a better understanding of contemporary visual culture. Cinema is particularly interested in philosophical approaches to the aesthetics of the moving image as well as in philosophical investigations on particular works and about the contexts in which these works are seen and produced”.
