Unsolicited SubmissionsOffscreen welcomes unsolicited original (i.e. not published elsewhere) submissions, but strongly recommends all interested parties read the description of the journal (About Offscreen) and take some time to peruse the site to get a sense of the journal’s interests. Submissions should be emailed to the editor Donato Totaro following the format guidelines below. It is advisable that you contact the editor with your proposal prior to submission. Offscreen frequently produces special thematic issues (see past issues for examples). If interested you may query the editor for information on upcoming special issues.
Format GuidelinesYour text should be formatted in either rich text format or in MSWord format. All film titles should be in italics and followed by the director and date: Nosferatu (F.W. Murnau, 1922). For citing your bibliographic references please use the parenthetical author system with conventional brackets, ex. “In deference to the time I invested, I’m including, at the end of this essay, a list of films I’d planned to include in the film canon” (Schrader 35). And then include a bibliography at the end citing full bibliographic information.
Paul Schrader. "Canon Fodder." Film Comment. September/October 2006, 33-49.
Use endnotes only for explanatory and digressive comments. Endnotes must be inputted manually in the body of the text with square brackets, ex. "One can not accuse Schrader of being unduly biased to American cinema, since over half (31 of 60) of the films are non-American.  And then numbered consecutively at the end of the text in the following manner:
fn1. Although from a wholly international/global perspective, one can argue that 29 out of 60 films is still too much.
Any accompanying photos should be included separately, in jpg format and no larger (roughly) than 300 X 200 pixel size, 72 dpi resolution. It is the author’s responsibility to procure rights for any photographs submitted. Minimum length requirements are as follows: 1000 words for book/film/dvd reviews and festival reports, 2000 words for articles/essays.
