Following the third Sightlines conference/film festival, held at RMIT University in December 2019, this third journal issue will showcase the work of those who presented/screened at the event alongside the work of a wider pool of international creative researchers. For issue 3, the journal will also include a number of screenplay works produced within a research context.
The editorial committee is therefore calling for reviewers who will be willing to respond to one of the submissions. If this is of interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 18 November to register your name on our reviewer database.
The Sightlines Journal is primarily an audio-visual publication designed to showcase films made in a research context within the higher education sector. The filmmakers are usually academic staff or doctoral students, often but not always based in the screen production discipline.
All submissions will be double peer reviewed, and as per the journal’s ethos of debate and discourse building, these peer reviews will be published alongside accepted works. Screen work creators will have an opportunity to respond to the peer reviews prior to publication.
This issue will follow the two previous issues – see below for links – in showcasing the full range of filmmaking research that occurs in the university sector, and contributing to the development of screen production as a discipline. Collaborations with industry are also encouraged.
