The Cine-Files is now accepting submissions (4000-6000 words) for the “Featured Scholarship” segment of Issue 8 (Spring 2015), a special issue on film sound. 


Submission Deadline:  March 1, 2015

Papers should make an argument about some aspect of cinematic sound.  We welcome a diversity of methodologies. Though writing should follow traditional essay conventions (strong thesis, linear organization and development of argument), we encourage the use of embedded film clips, audio files, and/or images to support the paper’s claims.


Submission Guidelines

The deadline for completed submissions is March 1, 2015.   Articles should be accompanied by a brief email indicating the article title, author’s name, institutional affiliation and contact information.  The Cine-Files practices double blind review for its featured scholarship selections, thus the attached submission (doc, please) must not contain the name of the author or any reference to the author.  Articles should follow Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition.  Articles should be 4000-6000 words. Please include a one-page abstract and send submission via email (with article attached as doc) to
