Contemporary Balkan Cinema

by Lydia Papadimitriou

Part of the Traditions in World Cinema Series

Contemporary Balkan Cinema Synopsis

A critical and comprehensive analysis of post-2008 Balkan cinema through a transnational and cross-cultural approach Comprehensive account of all national cinemas from the Balkan region Emphasis on co-productions, transnational exchanges and global circulation Reference tables on national and regional film supporting institutions and film festivals Focus on small and as-yet underrepresented cinemas, such as Montenegro, Kosovo, North Macedonia, and Albania The first inclusive collection to examine post-2008 developments in Balkan cinema, this book brings together a number of international scholars to explore its industrial contexts and textual dimensions. With a focus on transnational links, global networks and cross-cultural exchanges, the book addresses the role of national and supranational institutions as well as film festival networks in supporting film production, distribution and reception. It also identifies key characteristics in the subject matter and aesthetics of Balkan films made since the global economic crisis. Through critical and comprehensive country profiles, and with a focus on smaller and underrepresented cinemas from Montenegro, Kosovo, North Macedonia and Albania, the collection argues for the continuing relevance of the concept of 'Balkan cinema'.
