FILM INTELLIGENCE apologises to would-be users for an extended period of inactivity, resulting from a lack of human resources to maintain it, and a drying-up of outside contributions.
We are now at work on up-dating the site, and re-establishing it as The Internet Journal for new writing on the Moving Image, with its special relationship with the Collegium of the Pordenone Silent Film Festival (Giornate del Cinema Muto)
FILM INTELLIGENCE continues to offer a space in the great entangled overgrowth of film periodical publication, both print and digital. It provides a place for writing that can probe deeper than the purely journalistic, but still remain more accessible and research-based than the proliferating mass of academic literature.
FILM INTELLIGENCE is broad-based, recognising the moving image’s international spread and its 114 years of history, and keeping up to date with new releases and new tendencies. We’re open to writing about anything about the moving image, from pre-cinema to post-modern, from old Hollywood to abstract art installations - as long as the attitude is original and the style accessible.
