Reconceptualising film policies

Nolwenn Mingant (Editor), Cecilia Tirtaine (Editor)
This volume explores and interrogates the shifts and changes in both government and industry-based screen policies over the past 30 years. It covers a diverse range of film industries from different parts of the world, along with the interrelationship between different localities, policy regimes and technologies/media. Featuring in-depth case studies and interviews with practitioners and policy-makers, this book provides a timely overview of government and industry's responses to the changing landscape of the production, distribution, and consumption of screen media
