Senses of Cinema #50

From Senses of Cinema:
2009 – A huge year for Senses of Cinema!
Senses of Cinema launched the 50th issue of its online film journal on 13 April. Issue 50 is the ‘interview issue’. Highlights include Bob Rafelson in conversation with Rainer Knepperges and Franz Müller and Darren Hughes’ interview with Claire Denis.

The journal will celebrate a fully upgraded website with the mid-year release of Issue 51. The site will feature a stunning, contemporary design, increased visual content and greatly improved navigation, rendering Senses' archive of nearly 2500 articles more accessible to readers.

Senses of Cinema will also celebrate its 10th anniversary of continuous publication late in 2009. Having identified an important gap in Australian screen culture, Senses has grown from its humble origins as the passion-project of a couple of local cinephiles, to an internationally renowned publication lauded by The Times (London), Time Out and referenced by Encyclopaedia Britannica. A decade on Senses of Cinema remains true to its original editorial vision - publishing passionate, serious, intelligent and insightful writing on cinema.

Reflecting on these significant milestones, Co-Editors, Rolando Caputo and Scott Murray said that the continued vibrancy of Senses of Cinema was a tribute to the inspired contributions of the many authors that have written for Senses over the years.

Newly appointed General Manager, Blythe Chandler, acknowledged the dedication of Senses’ Editorial Team and Committee Members, past and present. She said, “it is a privilege to be able to work with such a passionate, knowledgeable and tireless group.”

About Senses of Cinema:
Senses of Cinema is a Melbourne-based online journal, dedicated to the serious and eclectic discussion of cinema. Senses of Cinema facilitates high-quality, critical debate about, and analysis of, Australian cinema, world cinema, screen theory and film history.

Senses of Cinema is grateful for the generous support of Screen Australia, Film Victoria and the AFI Research Collection, RMIT.
