Film geographies is a forum that includes everything related to films and geography. We stream films made by geographers, and films about geography. We offer a space where films cannot just be peer reviewed, but they can also be interpreted by viewers - as authors of films we don’t or can't explain everything our films are saying. Films can be essayistic in the structure, but they are not the same as texts. We make films so they can relay our arguments but you might find other points, reflections and emotions. Part of the pleasure of making films is allowing people to watch them and reinterpret them according to their lived reality.

From the academic point of view these films offer both an academic essay and something that people can write about in their own academic essays. From the external point of view Filmgeographies allows us to know more about local communities from all over the world through a wider range of perspectives.
