Sightlines: Filmmaking in the Academy 2023

Special Issue: Mobile and Smartphone Filmmaking – Past, Present & Future

Issue 5, 2023

“Welcome to the fifth issue of Sightlines: Filmmaking in the Academy. This special issue of the journal is led by guest editorial lead, Associate Professor Max Schleser, and features a selection of works from the Mobile Innovation Network & Association (MINA).

In the Sightlines tradition, Mobile and Smartphone Filmmaking – Past, Present & Future showcases screen productions and films made in a research context within the higher education sector. These non-traditional research outputs interrogate various aspects of creative arts research, including interactive and collaborative processes, experimental moving-image arts approaches, discursive socio-political formations, or mobile specific formations such as selfies and vertical video. This special issue invited those who presented research work at the Mobile Studies Congress at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (December 2022) or screened a mobile or smartphone film previously at MINA’s International Mobile Innovation Screenings & Smartphone Film Festival (2011-2023) to submit a work for consideration. This resulting issue features 12 mobile and smartphone films. Seven of the creative practice research works were created between 2015 to 2021 and five more recent smartphone films and screen production research projects were produced in 2022”
