    Vol. 2, No. 2 Videogames and narratives
    The second number of this year’s edition of the International Journal of Film and Media Arts is dedicated to videogames and narratives.

    In a time when cinema and videogames discourses are ever more intertwined, this special issue of IJFMA seeks to explore all the possible intersections between videogames and cinema at various levels from narrative structures to visual discourses, from reception oriented research focusing on the audience/user experience to more theoretical research focusing on the aesthetical transformations in cinema discourses that stem from videogames influence. Many authors such as Frank Rose or Oliver Grau have in the past discussed how ours is ever more a culture of immersion and not of illusion and the core role gaming plays in this process. The journal seeks contributions that will establish a common ground in game studies, between academy and industry. By opening its agenda to this topic IJFMA intends to keep at the forefront of the discussion and reflection on the future(s) of film and media arts.

    Call for papers: 27 September to 7 December 2017. Early submission is encouraged.
    Communication of decision to authors: 15 December
    Publication: December 2017
