Focus and Scope

Cinema in Practice is Simon Fraser University's first film academic journal, focusing on providing a space for undergraduate student's writing on film to be published and read broadly. We strive to give opportunities for students to work and contribute to the publication while spreading knowledge about cinema studies.


In our first year of publication, we are a peer-reviewed journal made up of a broad team of Editors, Designers, and Advisers. 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
