This special issue is the result of two processes that approach artistic research from the domains of artistic practice in film and its implications for research in film education institutions. The first part of the editorial describes the impetus for the conference Transversal Entanglement - Artistic Research in Film organized and hosted by the Institute for Artistic Research IKF1 at Film University Babelsberg, with considerable support from GEECT2, which took place from 3-5 June 2021 - on site and online. The second was through an open call for papers on the topic of artistic research in film and audiovisual media which aimed to augment and expand the scope of the submissions generated from the conference.
