This is the third volume of papers from the Irish Postgraduate Film Research Seminar designed to encourage Irish film scholarship and the study of Irish film. This collection includes new research on a wide range of topics, including Irish, European and Asian film. There is a particular emphasis upon the international context of film production and reception and the volume includes the keynote lecture on 'new waves' in world cinema by the distinguished film critic and scholar, Dudley Andrew. Intended to provide a platform for a growing body of work by young Irish scholars on Irish and other cinemas, this volume provides new discussions of Irish and international film.

Kevin Rockett is a lecturer in film studies at TCD, and author of Irish film censorship (2004). John Hill is head of the school of media and the performing arts, University of Ulster – Coleraine.
