We want to grow FilmGeographies as a film sharing community that includes peer review. Peer review is not only central to the process by which new research is recognised and validated by the scientific community, it also how we can learn and improve our own filmic literacy (Jacobs 2016). Traditional peer review processes that work for text-based academic journals are now adapting to suit the needs of non-traditional, non-text-based forms of research inquiry. Filmgeographies is working to develop as an interactive and collaborative network to help establish this new and exciting phase.
- To publish films made by geographers and other scholars in a way that allows them to be peer reviewed.
- To promote and coordinate film festivals, workshops and other activities that promote the use of film-making in the academy.
- To promote the use of film-making as a method of teaching that allows us to make education more relevant to a wider and more diverse group of engaged students and staff.
- To stimulate the exchange of information about film and film-making in geography and across the social sciences, arts and humanities.
