Cinephilia in the Age of Digital Reproduction
For years, "cinephilia" has been a part of the theatrical experience, denoting a deep, even limitless passion for the medium. Cinephilia encompasses consuming, defining, sharing, discussing, and writing about films, but what happens when the experience of watching movies becomes something increasingly complemented by digital means? This volume of original essays explores the pleasures of cinema in the realms of online communication, digital imagery, and digitized home viewing. Including the work of critics, scholars, and bloggers from the US, the UK, and Australia, Cinephilia in the Age of Digital Reproduction provides an innovative and multifaceted approach to the ever-evolving world of cinema culture. The first in a two-book series (volume two follows in 2009), this collection features contributions from Robert Burgoyne, Zach Campbell, Tobey Crockett, Brian Darr, Kevin Fisher, Andy Horbal, Christian Keathley, Adrian Martin, Jenna Ng, Lisa Purse, Dan Sallitt, and Girish Shambu.
