There are two horizons, one in the future, one in the past.

Through the HORIZONS OF CINEMA series, State University of New York Press will publish a range of well-written, accessible, critical, and appealing studies of the history, production, cultural reception, and social meaning of film. Subjects will include specific films, filmmakers, genres, historical eras of film production, and production processes; as well as books about multicultural, ethnographic, technical, and theoretical aspects of cinema. Books will examine American and other cinemas either retrospectively or with a view to future developments (or both). We will consider proposals for both monographs and anthologies.

We will be searching for exceptionally well-written, intriguing, and learned manuscripts aimed at both film scholars and intelligent general readers committed to learning about film. Authors in the series will include well-established scholars and writers about film, and young scholars with especially promising proposals.
