EFS Publications

EFS Publications is a new project spearheaded by Rouzbeh Rashidi, Dean Kavanagh and myself. It is an online film journal that will be constantly updated as material comes in. It will mix writing by and on EFS members with reflections on filmmaking and cinema past and present by an international array of writers. We hope that in time it will become a lively and diverse site for thinking, dreaming and discussing cinema and constantly questioning its limits.
