The Journal of Short Film arrives at Ohio State University

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

The Film Studies Program at The Ohio State University is pleased to announce that it is now the publisher of The Journal of Short Film. This quarterly DVD-publication of original artistic work was founded by Karl Mechem, who served as its Executive Editor through the initial four years. The editorial review board has included Associate Curator Jennifer Lange and Studio Editor Paul Hill from the Media Arts area of the Wexner Center for the Arts. They have graciously agreed to continue working with us in that capacity and are joined at the present time by Assistant Professor of Film and Media Studies, Brian Hauser of Union College. Matt Swift, Academic Advisor for the Film Studies Program is overseeing the production process from within our office.

Having now assumed the role of Executive Editor of the Journal of Short Film, I’m thrilled with its current state and potential for the future. With Volume 17 in production and the selection process for Volume 18 underway, we are committed to maintaining the JSF’s place as the unique outlet for original creative work in this vein. I invite you to visit our website at www.thejsf.org to learn more about the submission process, previous and forthcoming volumes, discounted orders, individual and institutional subscriptions, and the time and place of release screenings. Our future plans include developing companion components such as critical textual sites and pedagogical packages, and these will be detailed on the website as they come into full focus.

Beyond the new address, listed above, current subscribers should notice no changes in price or service as a result of the JSF’s transfer. Please check out the JSF, consider subscribing if you do not already do so, and pass word along to your friends, colleagues, and libraries.
