Dear William, 

Thank you very much for making this announcement. 

I am very eager to be considered as one of the  reviewers for the Film-Philosophy Journal. Last December, I obtained my graduate degree in Philosophy with a dissertation on the concept of space in Gilles Deleuze's works on cinema.  It is my professional interest to continue my academic career with a focus on different  Film-Philosophy themes and I am sure this would be a great opportunity for everyone interested.
I would be very grateful if you could provide me with more information on this subject.

Kind Regards,

Maria Victoria Gomez Vila
Licenciada en Filosofía - Universidad Nacional del Sur

Asunto: [FILM-PHILOSOPHY] Wanted: Book Reviewers for Film-Philosophy

Dear Subscribers

As you might well be aware, Film-Philosophy remains open access but is
now published under the auspices of Edinburgh University Press.

One of the upshots of this new collaboration is that Film-Philosophy
will no longer be publishing as many book reviews as we have done up
until now (keen readers will have noted that more than 20 appeared in
the weeks surrounding Christmas 2015-2016).

Instead, we shall only be publishing somewhere between 8 and 10
reviews per year. These will all be published in the final issue of
the journal for that particular year, thus appearing in the last few
pages of each volume of the journal.

For 2016, I already have a few reviews in place - but do need to
commission a few more.

Clearly, reviewing 8-10 books only per annum in what is already a
hugely crowded field makes the job of commissioning and editing those
reviews all the more tricky. With this in mind, I shall be trying to
limit reviews strictly to monographs and edited collections that have
a strongly film-philosophical bent.

I am happy to take on board ideas for books that merit reviewing, so
please do get in touch if you have any. That said, I apologise in
advance if your book does not get reviewed (and certainly if it does
not get reviewed immediately).

More than this, though, I have a handful of appropriate books that I
wish to be reviewed in this year's volume of Film-Philosophy, and so I
am looking for potential reviewers.

Although the reviews will appear at the end of the year, what with
editing, possible rewriting, proofing, typesetting and so on, it is
now time to commission those reviews.

What I am looking for, then, are reviewers who have a specific
interest in matters film-philosophical (I shan't give a list of titles
here, but will send it to those who express an interest in doing
reviews). And I am looking for reviewers who will be able to get a
review into me by mid-May at the latest (for turnaround purposes, as
mentioned above).

Reviews will be limited to 800-1,400 words - owing to the amount of
space determined by EUP for reviews.

I am in particular happy to favour early career academics and PhD
students, for whom publishing a review would be useful in terms of
gaining a publication, building up their curriculum vitae and so on.

To reiterate what I want:-

1. Reviewers who are happy to review film-philosophy books
2. Reviewers who can turn a review around between now and mid-May
3. Reviewers who are happy to write c1,000 words
4. I shall give preference to PhD students and early career academics

If you feel that this is you, therefore, please be in touch - and we
can go from there.

With best wishes

William
